Operatives of the Police Command have rearrested a 58-year-old inmate, Jacob Alonge, who was serving a 21-year jail term, but escaped from the Correctional Centre during the 2020 #EndSARS protest.

It was learnt that Alonge was sentenced to prison by an Edo State High Court for raping his daughter, Gift Alonge.

The state's Commissioner of Police (CP), Funsho Adegboye, said the police got credible intelligence that Alonge, a serial rapist and jail breaker, was sighted in Ossos in Akoko-Edo LGA, which led operatives to storm his house in the community only to some unscrupulous element who resisted his arrest.

He further said, “But they were overpowered by the police and he was rearrested and brought to the command.”

In an interview with journalists, the convict said he escaped because everyone was escaping after their prison was forced open during the #EndSARS protest

He said, “I escaped to my village. I was called that police were in my house and were looking for me, so I went to meet them and I was arrested.”
