A source at the GPHC moments ago told INews that there is ‘chaos and confusion’ at the hospital presently as many more officers and prisoners continue to be brought in for emergency medical treatment.

“I ain’t able with this, if people can see what is going on here and people are already panicking wondering what really is happening. Prison officers keep coming in one after the other for treatment. Then you see them escorting prisoners in bunches and all of them need fast medical attention,” the woman said.

Sources has earlier this morning indicate that one prison officer had died. However, INews was reliably informed that no one died during this morning’s riot.
