Last evening, the father of Gilbert handed him over to the police after he had turned up at his house seeking refuge.

He is likely to be charged today after being accused of murdering Rawle Rodrigues back in January of this year at Stabroek Square.

Inews has confirmed that a number of road blocks and search teams have been dispatched to ascertain the whereabouts of the remaining escapees who are considered dangerous.

The prisoners had escaped by drilling a hole in the wall of their cell. The junior rank on duty remains under close arrest.

Investigations are continuing.
