At least, four inmates of the Ife medium custodial centre were allegedly killed on Tuesday after they attempted a break from the centre.
It was learnt that inmates were having their weekly environmental sanitation exercise when some of the inmates made to leave the centre forcefully.
However, luck ran out of the inmates as warders confronted them in collaboration with other sister security agencies around the custodial centre.
The Minister of Interior Rauf Aregbesola, said after the Oyo jailbreak that sister agencies would form a security network around the nation’s custodial facilities to forestall cases of breaks.
In the melee, one official of the custodial centre was reportedly injured and was taken to hospital for medical help.
