Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, says inmates who escaped from the custodial centre in Owerri, Imo capital, will be granted amnesty if they return voluntarily.
“Unlawful escape from custody is a crime but the government in its magnanimity will grant amnesty to prisoners who willfully return. They will no longer be charged with an 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."OMOKOSHABAN
