Longdie also said the service is currently doing a headcount of inmates as well as ascertaining the degree of damage done during the attack.

He said: “We are yet to ascertain the actual extend of the damage done. Yes there are deaths but I cannot confirm how many for now. We are making a headcount of the inmates.

“We will issue a press release to let the public know what has happened.”
