Interior Minister Probes Correctional Service Officers Aiding Terrorists

The Minister of Interior, OLUBUNMI TUNJI-OJO has ordered the Controller-General of the Nigerian Correctional Service, HALIRU NABABA, to investigate an allegation against personnel of the service.


Nigeria’s Chief of Defence Staff, General CHRIS MUSA, had accused some Nigerian Correctional Service personnel of conniving with inmates to finance the operations of terrorists.


In the wake of the allegation, the minister condemned the unpatriotic act by the personnel and vowed that anyone found culpable would be brought to book.


He called for a speedy investigation into the matter, noting that any officer culpable or complicit of sabotaging the Nigerian Correctional Facility, and by extension the security of the country, shall face the full wrath of the law.


The minister also said that actions are underway to reform the correctional service to match international standards where inmates would be truly rehabilitated.


In another development, TUNJI-OJO visited the United Nations House in Abuja at the Donor Round Table on Correctional Service Reform, where he canvassed for the support of international development partners towards reforming the Nigerian Correctional Service.
