Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola has said that custodial centres in the country are now fully secure following increased jail breaks witnessed last year.
Highlighting the achievements of President Muhammadu Buhari in the Ministry during a State House Press Briefing Series on Thursday, January 26, the Minister assured Nigerians that the personnel guarding custodial centres are now well-trained and fully equipped.
“They [NCoS] now have the capacity to withstand and repel any form of attack.
“The Correctional Information Management System (CIMS) which captures the records and biometrics of every inmate in the custodial centres to facilitate quick dispensation of justice has been deployed in all the States of the Federation and the FCT.”
Aregbesola also assured Nigerians that the coming general elections will be conducted in a peaceful and secure atmosphere.
“All the security agencies in the country, including the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), are therefore on top of their game. They will leave no stone unturned to provide adequate security for the conduct of free and fair elections. Nigerians should therefore keep their minds at rest”.
