NCoS Confirms Death of 4 Inmates after Attempted Jailbreak in Kaduna

The attention of the Nigeria Correctional Service Kaduna State COMMAND has been drawn to some malicious publications by a section of the media in respect of the attempted jail-break by a section of the condemned convict cell in the custodial centre in Kaduna on Tuesday 31st March, 2020.

The COMMAND had issued a PRESS release earlier to inform the public of this attempted jail-break.

This release is necessary to assure the public that the COMMAND and indeed the Service are not trying to hide any fact as purported by a section of the Press, especially when life is involved.

Four inmates later died in the hospital from the injuries sustained in the mellie that ensued while being restrained by the Custodial officers from breaking jail.

For the avoidance of doubt, all the deceased inmates were from the condemned section of the Custodial Centre where the jail-break occurred.

A comprehensive investigation has commenced on the directive of the Controller General of the Nigeria Correctional Service, Alhaji Jafaru Ahmed.
