Reps Advocate Provision Of CCTV In Nigerian Prisons


The House of Representatives has called for the installation of closed circuit cameras at strategic areas in Nigerian prisons.

The Chairman of the House Committee on Interior, Representative Adams Jagaba, made the call after members of the committee were taken round the Kuje Prison on Wednesday.

Two inmates of the Kuje Prison were said to have escaped four days ago following a jail break.

Jagaba also said there was an urgent need to recruit more personnel into the Nigeria Prison Service (NPS) in order to enhance security.

He said that the National Assembly has made appropriate budgetary provision for more vehicles and arms for the service.

Responding, the Deputy Comptroller-General (Operations) of NPS, Mr Emmanuel Ogundele, said an investigation was on-going on the jail break.
