Notorious Armed Robbers, Cultists Escape Police Custody In Bayelsa

An uncertain number of notorious armed robbers and cultists have escaped from the custody of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) of the Nigerian Police in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State.

The police command in Bayelsa was said to be combing all the nooks and crannies of the state capital to re-arrest the suspected daredevil criminals.

While some said the fleeing number was 10, security sources said the police were still trying to determine the figure.

But one of them, it was gathered, had been rearrested by the police.
