Authorities in Nigeria have announced that 144 prisoners of the 240 who escaped last week-end during the attack of the correctional facility in Kogi state were recaptured.
The authorities have urged the rest to surrender or risk being prosecuted after arrest.
The public is encouraged to report any case. Authorities have assured the public of their safety as the hunt for the fugitives continues.
Nigeria has had rising insecurity, with this being the second attack on a prison this year.
