While parading 126 suspected criminals on Wednesday, Babatunde Kokumo, Edo commissioner of police, said 10 of the suspects were the inmates who escaped earlier.
He said the inmates immediately returned to crime and were re-arrested by the police.
“We have commenced actions against the criminal elements. It will interest you to know that 10 of the criminal elements who escaped from Oko Correctional Centre on Airport Road, Benin and the Correctional Centre on Sapele Road, Benin were also arrested,” he said.
