Robbers locked up in police cell remove roof and escape while officers slept



A group of thieves arrested and locked up in a cell in Lagos reportedly broke out of their cell through the roof of the police station while police officers slept. The incident happened at Isheri Oshun, an outskirt of Lagos.

According to PM Express, residents of Isheri Oshun expressed shocked after men of the Nigeria Police Force claimed that the three robbers they arrested escaped in the night by removing the station’s ceiling and roof without any interruption from officers on duty.

The suspected notorious criminals were arrested through the assistance of the residents who handed them over to the police.

However, they escaped through the roof in an operation that lasted for several hours. The following morning, the officers discovered that the roof of the cell had been damaged, removed and the suspects had escaped.

The police led by their Divisional Police Officer, one CSP Camelius  moved into action and started manhunt for the suspects who were said to have escaped without trace.

The police later arrested one Bashiru Rabiu for his alleged involvement in the cell break, and has been charged before Isolo Magistrates court for willful damage and escape from lawful custody under the criminal code.
