Rauf Aregbesola, minister of interior, says the Prisoners who escaped from the correctional in Owerri, Imo state capital, will be pardoned if they return back on their own
He said: “Unlawful escape from custody is a crime but government in its magnanimity will grant amnesty to prisoners who willfully return.
“They will no longer be charged with unlawful escape but only for the initial crimes that took them to prison. So we urge all escapees to return before they are caught on the run.”
He also said the federal government will leave no stone unturned as those who were involved in the catastrophic attack will be brought to book
