Olarotimi Oladokun, a spokesman for the command, claimed this on Thursday in response to Christian Akara’s testimony at a coroner’s inquest.
Akara stated that at least 150 convicts were slain by an armed guard and that he himself participated in transporting the bodies.

However, Oladokun stated in a statement that a gunfight between intruders and security officers resulted in 20 fatalities.
He said, “The invaders, who came in large numbers, engaged the security guards in heavy exchange of fire, encouraging hardened inmates to set the facility on fire in an attempt to cause mass escape. Thankfully, what would have resulted in an unprecedented security breach in Lagos State was professionally rebuffed.
“Sadly, 20 inmates lost their lives while desperately trying to escape and eight correctional officers sustained various degrees of injury with some, life-threatening. In line with correctional service protocols, the respective stakeholders and next-of-kins of the deceased have been duly notified.”Jamb Result
