Gunmen, who on Sunday attacked the Medium Security Custodial Centre in Jos, Plateau State have been trapped inside the facility by combined team of security agencies.

The gunmen reportedly stormed the facility in large number with sophisticated weapons.

According to Mr. Francis Enobore, Controller of Corrections (PRO), in a statement on Sunday night, the invaders arrived at the Custodial Center at about 1720hrs and immediately made for the main gate where they engaged the armed squad personnel in a gun battle before breaking into the yard.

“Although they gained entrance to the yard, they are however trapped within as men from sister security services were immediately mobilised to assist the armed guards to cordon the perimeter wall and the entire area.

“Reinforcement from the response squad of the Service has also been mobilised to the center.

“The situation is presently under control as the attackers’ firing power is being subdued by superior fire from a combined team of security agencies,” the statement said.
