Nigeria to build six new big prisons

The Federal Government on Saturday said it would establish six modern custodial facilities in the six geo-political zones in the country.

The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, stated this while inspecting the ongoing Model Maximum Security Custodial facility project, Janguza, Kumbotso Local Government Area of Kano State.

Mr Aregbesola said the project was part of programmes initiated by President Muhammadu Buhari to reform the correctional service.

He said: “We are actualising our commitment to reform Correctional Service that we have in Nigeria.

“What we have here is a model of what we expect to have nationwide and here is a 3,000 custodial facility, and we plan to have it in each of the six geo-political zones.

“This is more advanced in terms of space and other facilities. It is designed for inmates awaiting trial, petty, medium and maximum security facility.

“I am highly impressed by the pace and quality of work,” he said.

Mr Aregbesola lauded President Buhari for his support to the Correctional service reforms aimed at enhancing its operations.
