NCoS Releases Details Of Fleeing Suleja Prison Inmates

119 Inmates Flee As Rainstorm Wreaks Havoc At Suleja Prison
The Nigerian Correctional Service (NCoS) has released the tracking details of some of the inmates who escaped from the Medium Security Custodial Centre in Suleja, Niger State.

Recall that on April 24, rainfall destroyed the walls of the Suleja prison which led to the escape of 118 inmates.

Minister of Interior, Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, said the collapsed walls of the Suleja prisons were old.

Tunji-Ojo said the federal government would prevent future occurrences of the incident.

“Obviously, we can see the walls are actually old. Unfortunately, there are certain responsibilities that we must deal with,” the minister had said.
