Aregbesola declares Nigerians will be shocked by Imo prison attack outcome
The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, has said that the outcome of the investigative report of the attacks on Owerri Custodial Centre would shock Nigerians.
Recall that the state prison facilities and police headquarters in Owerri, the Imo State capital came under attack by unknown gunmen on April 5.
Aregbesola said the attack was the worst of its kind in the history of the country
The former Governor spoke at the headquarters of the Nigerian Correctional Service, NCS, Abuja on Sunday while addressing squadron commanders.
“Let me say it loud and clear here when the investigation is concluded, Nigerians would know the roles played even by our officers in Owerri.
“But I must give kudos to our personnel in Bauchi Kano and Lagos (Ikoyi) for their gallantry in frustrating attempts by intruders to attack our facilities. They did not allow small, small things to sway them from doing their jobs,” Aregbesola said.
Speaking further, the minister warned that the President Muhammadu Buhari government would no longer tolerate any form of “successful” attacks on prison facilities.
Aregbesola called on the squadron commanders to apply maximum force in defending prison facilities across the country.
