More than one thousand 800 inmates have escaped from prison in Nigeria after it was attacked by gunmen.

The attackers reportedly entered the prison yard in the south-eastern town of Owerri by using explosives to blast the administrative block.

Six prisoners have reportedly returned, while 35 refused to escape. Police have accused the banned separatist group, the Indigenous People of Biafra, of carrying out the attack.

It has reportedly denied involvement. The Nigerian Correctional Service has confirmed that one thousand 844 inmates escaped from the jail in Imo state.

Heavily armed men stormed the Owerri Custodial Centre in the early hours of yesterday, after arriving in pickup trucks and buses.

A police spokesperson said the attackers carried rocket-propelled grenades, machine guns, explosives and rifles.
