This was made known in a statement on Monday, November 30, by the Nigerian Police Force PRO, Frank Mba.
Mba identified the escaped prisoners as; Adebayo Opeyemi, Oloride Benjamin, Peter Osas, Hudu Musa and Frank Odion.
The Police PRO said the fleeing inmates were jailed for armed robbery, car theft, unlawful possession of weapons, illegal dealing and selling of weapons.
He stated that Adebayo Opeyemi is a dismissed soldier, Benjamin Oloride was convicted and sentenced to death, and Mr Musa Hudu had nine months remaining to serve from his prison term.
Mba revealed that the convicts have snatched a total of four vehicles since their escape, adding that Benjamin Oloride snatched a vehicle 30mins after he escaped because he needed to leave Benin City.
