Nigeria Prisons chief visits Edo over jail break attempt to free kidnappers

DCG Aremu Tajudeen, the Deputy Controller-General of Nigerian Prisons Service (NPS) in charge of Operations, said the organisation had evolved strategic measures to strengthen security around all the prisons across the country.

This was contained in a statement issued in Benin on Thursday by the Public Relations Officer of Edo command.

Tajudeen was in Benin to assess the security situation in various prisons in the state, especially the Medium Security Prison (MSP) Oko, Benin where an imminent jail break to release kidnap suspects was recently averted.

He urged members of staff of the command to continue to maintain professionalism, remain alert and poised to deal with any situation.

“Every form of negligence or compromise should be avoided and strict discipline should be sustained and enforced as always,” he was quoted to have said.

He expressed satisfaction with the synergy and mutual support among the various security agencies in the state.

Tajudeen was accompanied on the visit by the Assistant Controller-General of Prisons, ACG Zone “G”, Mrs Okereke Clementina, the state Controller of Prisons, Mr Joseph Usendiah, among other senior officers.
