While some of the inmates have reportedly returned voluntarily, thousands of them are still at large. On Friday morning, one of them was nabbed by the police in Akwa Ibom State.

Publishing photos of the escaped inmates, the NCS on its Twitter handle noted that efforts are on to get clear pictures of the first batch bearing blank spaces.

Below are some of the faces published.
