KZN police have confirmed 31 prisoners are on the run after the truck they were being transported to court in on Wednesday morning was hijacked.

“The suspects pointed firearms at the police officers and forced open the rear of the truck. 31 awaiting trial prisoners escaped out of the 45 that were in the truck. “A manhunt is underway for the escapees,” said Naicker.

In a voice note being circulated on WhatsApp, residents were urged to be vigilant and keep their houses locked as the prisoners would be looking for new clothes.
