Here's what supposedly caused the riot at Kirikiri Prisons today

There were reports earlier today that inmates of Kirikiri Medium Prisons attempted a jail break leading to the death & injury of many. But according to new reports, it may not have been a jail break

Now this is not confirmed but according to someone who is involved in Prison Outreach and was supposed to be at prison tomorrow, he got a mail from the co-ordinator of the outreach informing them that their visit has been cancelled due to an incident at the prison this afternoon. In the email that was sent out, what happened at the prison was explained. See it after the cut...


Please be advised that the Prison Outreach for tomorrow at Kirikiri Prisons has been cancelled.
Apparently, at the Kirikiri Medium Prison , the inmate GO bought himself a microphone and a fan with his own money today and the Deputy Controller of the prison did not approve of it. The DCP ordered the GO to be locked up in isolation. This infuriated the inmates and demanded the release of the GO.

A mob of inmates started throwing stones at the authorities. Hence, DCP ordered the Prison Mobile Unit to shoot on sight. Shots were fired sporadically into the inmates and scores are dead. I was informed that the K-9 Unit was also dispatched into the inmate population. The GO has been bitten several times and in critical condition.

 Please be praying for him and the entire inmate population. Some of the ones who died might not have had any contact with family members since their incarceration.

I will keep you keep you all posted on developments.
Shalom

We must expect the worst in the prisons in Rivers State, where the Courts have been closed since June, 2014.

Let us all pray for the inmates in the prisons in Rivers State and also pray for the communities near and far from these prisons.

Shoot at sight? In this day and age? We must stand against jungle justice in this country. We are not animals for God's sake!! There must be accountability for any lives lost, prisoner or not, they are Nigerians and have human rights.

Shoot on sight? Who is that animal? Pls he needs to answer for this. If he had done his job properly the GO wouldn't have acquired the items in the first place. Who bought the items for him in the first place?

I don't know who to blame in this issue. Both parties fucked up big time.

Shoot @ sight,for a mare protest. Gosh,one can't jst imagine when 9ja wld ever learn. Cos u are in uniform and they are prison that makes them less human. What happnd to denying them sm incentives hmmm,aint that one of the policies. Is shooting the only remedy? Prisons are for corrections the last time I checked. They better investigate the matter tho wld still be wiped like many other investigations. Choi,my country my country.
