The Senate ordered an investigation into recurring jailbreaks, invites interior minister

The Senate’s Committee on the Interior has been asked to launch an investigation into the facts surrounding the country’s ongoing jailbreaks.
According to the legislators, this will also hinder future jailbreaks.
During the plenary on Tuesday, the MPs requested that the committee invite the Minister of Interior, the Comptroller General of the Nigeria Detention Service (NCOs), and the Attorney General of the Federation to discuss the state of prisons around the country.
After Senator Istifanus Gyang, a Federal Lawmaker, brought the attack on two communities in the Bassa Local Government Area of Plateau State on a correctional centre in Jos, Plateau State, to the attention of legislators, the Senate directed its committee on actions to take.
Senator Gyang described the attack as a blow to Plateau North’s relative tranquillity, and he urged for a more effective reinforcement and security management system to stop attacks at correctional facilities throughout the country.
Several inmates are currently on the run as a result of the country’s ongoing jailbreaks.
Rauf Aregbesola, Nigeria’s Minister of Interior, claimed earlier this month that over 3,000 inmates have escaped from prison in the last year.
From 2020 until the present, 4,860 inmates have fled from various detention camps, according to Aregbesola, who revealed this during a press conference at the State House in Abuja. Of these, 984 have been caught.
As a result, there are around 3876 convicts who are no longer in custody across the country.
According to Aregbesola, fingerprints of all inmates in the country have been collected, and the Federal Government thinks that this effort would aid in the tracking and recapture of the fugitives.
