“Upon receipt of the report, the Commissioner of Police Plateau State Command, CP Bartholomew N. Onyeka who led reinforcement to the scene, directed that the entire centre be cordoned.

He continued, “The CP also directed immediate stop and search where seven escapees have been re-arrested by the police and are in custody while one escapee voluntarily surrendered himself to the police.

“Based on the prompt response, the situation was brought under control by the superior gunfire of Security Agencies.

“The CP reaffirmed that the Police and other Security Agencies are currently on the ground to effectively deprive the hoodlums of the space they desire to perpetrate their evil acts. Meanwhile, the situation is under control.”
