He, however, added that the gunmen have been trapped in the facility. He said, “The Medium Security Custodial Centre in Jos, Plateau State came under attack by gunmen who reportedly stormed the facility in large number with sophisticated weapons.

The gunmen had gained entrance to the yard, they are trapped within as men from sister security services were immediately mobilized 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 mobilized to the center.

“The situation is presently under control as the attacker’s firing power is being subdued by superior fire from a combined team of security agencies. Update will be made available as event unfolds.”

However, the number of casualties or injured persons cannot be ascertained yet.
