The punishment was put in place by the management of the correctional centre after a jailbreak on October 22, 2020.
The jailbreak led to the killing of about 18 persons by security operatives guarding the prison, the website reports.
Some inmates also escaped from the facility..
SaharaReporters gathered that to punish the inmates for attempting to escape, they were denied food except dry garri (cassava flake).
A source in the prison, who confirmed the situation to Reporters, said the inmates are angry, adding that it could lead to another jailbreak if not swiftly addressed by the government.
“The inmates have been under lock and key and they don’t get food.
“The authority is not giving them food and their families are not allowed to bring in food for them anymore.
“Inmates are presently protesting against starvation and what is currently happening might have more effect than the jailbreak that happened.
“There is a protest ongoing now as inmates are shouting for the restoration of their food ration,”
the source said.
The source explained that inmates are being given dry garri once in three days.
