Attacks On Prisons Are Coordinated To Ridicule FG - Aregbesola

Attacks On Prisons Are Coordinated To Ridicule FG - Aregbesola (Updated: 7 months ago)


Rauf Aregbesola, the Nigerian minister of interior, has stated that the constant attacks on correctional facilities across the country are to ridicule the government and make the country unsafe.

Speaking on Sunday October 24 while visiting a correctional facility in Abolongo, Oyo town, which was attacked by gunmen who freed some inmates on Friday October 22, Aregbesola claimed that the attacks are premeditated, planned and coordinated attacks meant to make Nigeria unsafe and ridicule the government.

The minister stated that the federal government will pursue not just those who attacked the facility, but those who have escaped lawful custody.

He said;

“External attacks on custodial facilities were a rarity hitherto. What was common, and for which our system had been well primed, was an internal breach,” he said.

“But beginning with the spontaneous #EndSARS protests of last year which dovetailed into massive riots, there have been consistent attacks on our facilities in Owerri, Benin, Kabba, and now Oyo.

“This is not just some random happening. These are premeditated, planned and coordinated attacks meant to make Nigeria unsafe and ridicule the government.

“I’m assuring Nigerians that the federal government will pursue not just those who attacked our facility, but those who have escaped lawful custody.

“The attack was unconscionable. I commend officers of the Nigeria Correctional Service and other members of sister security agencies who provided perimeter security for our facility for fighting gallantly and holding the fort before the attackers were able to gain access to the awaiting trial section of the facility.

“However, those who escaped are already being pursued. Some have been rearrested; many more will still be captured.”
