Vanguard visited the Owerri correctional center located along Okigwe road, and saw bags of different sizes even religious books as well as writing materials, clothes of both male and female were seen on the road sides, at the front of the correctional center.

Other streets lugages of the fleeing inmates were visibly seen included; Wethedral, Assumpta and front of Imo government house.

Some eyewitnesses who spoke to Vanguard said that, “The inmates decided to abandon their properties because they think with the bag they can be located easily and some of the bags were heavy for them to carry them and run at the same time.”
