There was a real life Prison Break today in Nigeria.
Hundreds of prisoners have escaped from a Nigerian prison this morning leaving one dead after the complex was taken over by intruders, local media reports.
Footage taken from the road outside the Benin Correctional Center in Edo, southern Nigeria, shows men clambering over the barbed prison fences as a crowd gathers beneath.
Some men are seen using makeshift weapons to hack away at the barbed wire to jump what appears to be a 15-foot prison wall to the ground, a video shared by national outlet Vanguard shows.
Armed men reportedly stormed the prison and authorities say they made away with some ammunition as well.
