Owerri Jailbreak: Inmates Turn To Cleaning, Hawking Jobs For Survival by Doraty1(f): 3:51pm On Apr 07
An exclusive investigation by Vanguard revealed that from the thousands of fleeing inmates some were said to have taken up menial jobs within and outside the Owerri metropolis to raise money.

Vanguard was told that the choice areas for these inmates were brothels, motor parks, market square, even as some were said to have started the hawking trade. Also, some were said to have taken refuge in uncompleted buildings as their home as well as mingle around nightlife hotspots.

Eyewitnesses narrated their experiences to Vanguard with the said inmates. The places visited by Vanguard include Control post along Onitsha road, Whethdral roundabout up to Poly Junction, IMSU junction as well as Irete axis on Owerri/Onitsha road.

According to reports received by Vanguard, some notorious inmates do not want to go to their village, because they are afraid that they would be reported to the security agencies. Therefore, they engage in pick-pocketing at night to raise money quickly for themselves.

Some on the other hand are looking to raise little money through cleaning jobs as part of starting afresh, just as some of them said they needed money to go back to their villages, as their people are not even aware that they were in prison for many years and that they were imprisoned by intimidation and false allegations against them.

Those who said they had an encounter with some of the inmates, one Chike, known as “iron” said: “Our happiness is that my guy is back from prison thanks to the people who released them. My brother all the way from Ebonyi came to do hawking business and was arrested that they demolished Eke Ukwu market in Owerri. He committed no crime. We did not know he was in prison.”

Another drama was said to have played out in Control post, a group of said to be “bad boys” jubilated over their freed friends one of which was said to have been arrested in connection with an alleged robbery/kidnapping between Control post, World Bank and Hospital junction along Owerri/ Port Harcourt road.

They said: “Our men are back. We are drinking and enjoying. Work begins, who be police. Signal my man is back. They can’t come out now, later in the night. Men can’t go back to the village. That one no-follow.”

A businessman, in Irete, who did not want his name mentioned said: “Some of these inmates are innocent. Two of them were in my friends business premises. They opened up and said they were among those freed and explained how they got into prison. My brother, you will shed tears.

“Our people are suffering. They pleaded to my friend, that they want to join his boys in offloading bags of cement and clean up his business premises in order to raise money and go home. They said they are from Ngor Okpala local government area and have been in prison for more than 15 years. But my friend gave them N5000 and gave them food and that they should go home.”

In another encounter, a source, owner of a business/entertainment outfit around one of the nightlife areas in Owerri, who chose to remain anonymous said: “Is it not the prisoners that now work as cleaners? They are responsible ladies just that they look famished and malnourished, but with time they will be Ok. What they need is just rehabilitation as some of them complained that they did nothing that should warrant their imprisonment.

“Some of them are now in market places, motor parks as cleaners, some doing hawking business. It is not everything we see we say sometimes. You see, they are ready to wash plates. Some of them have repented. Some of them did not commit any offence. This is is wicked country.”

How I wished this jailbreak was done by IPOB! But, it's only fools who won't understand that it's the work of lying FG to foist the terrorist tag on IPOB.

If I must be a slave, I prefer to be a slave under IPOB than under the Fulani.
Do you know why?

1. IPOB will not rape old and pregnant women. An Igbo man cannot get that bad.
2. IPOB will be clean, not dirty rags. At least, I won't be ashamed to call them my slave masters.
3. IPOB will not sack me from my ancestral home and make me to live elsewhere.

So, stop showing us your fake concern. We don't need it.

If you can be releasing and rehabilitating BH, NO PRISONERS IN SOUTH EAST DESERVES TO BE IN PRISON no matter the gravity of his/her offence.

More jailbreaks in South East, ESN are freedom Fighters. We Igbo supports them.

I think this Arson in owerri and the freeing of inmates were in the same script as the visit of IGP Adomu to imo and the visit of 00sinbajo.

Notice that this anarchy that was carried out to smear ESN was actually a ploy to genuinely draw IGP away from office and install a new one in his absence (to remove any friction). The fact that B00hari is away in England(that's if he is still alive) makes one to understand that the cabals are actually running the company. Is there actually a Buhari, or was the news of his travel a ploy to cushion the effect of this happenings being that it happened in his absence?

Also, it is expected that 00sinbajo should swear in/announce this appointment. But he was sent away also to owerri for road commissioning.
All the powers that were supposed to come to play were carefully sent far from Abuja on seemingly genuine issues (as it may seem) to effect a bloodless coup on IGP Adamu.
If actually this is the case, it simply means that IGP knows something which he can hold onto to resist being replaced. That could be why he was given a genuine reason to get him far away from the city of power. Now the question is "what is it that the IGP knows?"

Hence the belief that ESN is being Framed.This could be the reasons ESN was immediately fingered without investigation.
This could also be why there were no casualty on the seize at the police headquarters all through the night and no reinforcement by the neighboring armed forces around the scene. Just to sell the idea of a genuine cause for alarm to draw out the IGP.

The plot is clear now.

while her politicians are the richest politicians on earth.
I live in a country where police men stays on roads collecting 100 Naira from
motorists on daily basis.
I live in a country where police men have killed countless number of men
because they refused to give them police 20 naira.
I live in a country where police can frame you up and put you away for eternity.
I live in a country a governor can ask the military to arrest women, take them to
facilities in the North and rape them turn by turn.
I live in a country where bandits and Fulani herdsmen terrorists are paid and
pampered.
I live in a country where Boko Haram terrorists are rehabilitated, while peaceful
protesters are shot.
I live in a country that shot peaceful protesters on camera and yet deny it ever
happened.
I live in a country where snakes have been accused of swallowing millions.
I live in a country a president can't address the nation and can't have a media
chat with journalists.
I live in a country where the government doesn't obey the rule of law.
I live in a country that claim they are secular nation, but allow some states to
practice Sharia.
I live in a country that steals people's mandate using supreme Court.
I live in a country men of God stands with the oppressors instead of the people.
I live in a country where the poor masses worship and kill themselves for the
oppressors.
I live in Nigeria.

Those are some good prisoners that refused to be foolish and stupid like some people cownu have brainwashed their empty brains.
They rather do time for their crimes and come out a new man, than coming out to join some brainwashed swines (the main reasons cownu asked his swines to jailbreak
in the first place, he is looking for recruits) and end up losing their lives less than 34 days!

lilvicky68:
Those people that have like 1 or 2 years more to serve will return...but you see those life imprisonment folks..that have japa..
They will japa to go cause havoc in their communities, rape, steal, kill, maim their fellow indigenes until they all meet their waterloo on a more brutal level.

That will be the end of Solomon Cownus tongue

pinknipple:
People wey come back na people wey death dey await for their home for killing somebody's loved one.

They better be in prison alive,than go out there and be dead few days after.
GBAMSOLUTELY.
Dem no dey telli person.
