A a number of prisoners escaped from Kolbe Foundation late this evening. We have deployed a number of Police and BDF to assist prison in the search for these escapees. Before escaping they were able to disarmed one of the prison guard of his weapon.
The general public is therefore asked to be extremely vigilant and careful when using the highways and not to pick up any stranger along your journey. The prisoners are considered to be armed and dangerous. Anyone having information on the whereabouts of these prisoners can call 911 or 0800TIPS. While there is rumors that Mason and associates are among the escapees, I have confirmed with the Director of Kolbe that Mason and associates are not among the escapees.

We assured the general public that the ministry of national security will not rest until all these prisoners are back in prison where they belong. We also warn the General Public not to harbor none of these fugitive, doing so is a crime and anyone found doing so will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
