Ncos Says 16 Fleeing Inmates Recaptured.

Nigerian Correctional Service says it has recaptured 16 out of the 119 inmates who escaped from the Suleja Medium Security Custodial Centre in Niger State last week.

The spokesperson for the NCOS, Abubakar Umar, who disclosed this the downpour caused severe damage to the custodial centre’s infrastructure, including a breach in the perimeter fence, allowing inmates to flee.

The Minister of Interior, Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, after surveying the damage caused by a severe downpour at the custodial centre in Suleja, highlighted the urgent need for reforms in over 240 custodial centres nationwide, and pledged the Federal Government’s dedication to bringing the remaining fleeing inmates back into custody.

The spokesperson remained quiet on why the Nigerian Correctional Service is yet to publish the images and other information on the remaining 103 fleeing inmates.
