There was tension at the Kuje Correctional Centre as inmates, early Monday, protested against the death of their colleague.

It was gathered that the unrest was triggered following the death of the inmate, who was allegedly not given prompt medical attention.

It was further gathered that some inmates also attempted to escape from the prison facility amidst the tension but were prevented by the warders.

Officials of the prison confirmed the death of the inmate to our correspondent.

“The guy has been sick for weeks now, but the situation deteriorated last night and the wardens refused to attend to him until he gave up the ghost around 6:28 am this morning,” a prison official also told SaharaReporters.
