Surigao Sur Jail Guards Under Probe Over Jailbreak Attempt that Killed 4 Inmate
The Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) Caraga will conduct an investigation against the jail guards on duty during the jailbreak attempt in Surigao del Sur.
According to Jail Supt. Bernie Ruiz, assistant regional director for Operations at BJMP-Caraga, an investigation would be performed if the Lianga District Jail guards have any lapses following the escape attempt of 13 detainees that resulted in the deaths of four. They attempted to flee on Sunday morning, but the detainees were unable to leave the jail grounds.
The probe, according to Ruiz, is to determine if they were involved in the jailbreak that resulted in the deaths of four detainees. According to the official, two groups of detainees attempted to flee, with the first group attempting to flee their cell when breakfast was being served.
The other gang, on the other hand, was the one that attacked the two guards who were shot by others at the main gate. While a correctional officer pointed a gun at them, the three convicts held a trainee and regular personnel hostage.
During the commotion, four of them were shot and died instantly. According to the report, the deaths were caused by jail guards in the tower. Last Monday, they dispatched six staff and issued new high-powered guns in response to detainees attempting to run.
Four persons were killed, while the others were charged with murder, kidnapping for ransom, and breaking the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act. According to Ruiz, the other detainees will face additional charges.
