The Controller General of Corrections Haliru Nababa mni, has declared all Custodial centres red zone. This was made known by the Deputy Controller General of Corrections incharge operations Tukur Ahmed , during his confidence building visit to Anambra State on Wednesday 3rd November 2021,preparatory to the November 6th gubernatorial elections in the State.
The DCG who in company of the Controller of Corrections Anambra State Command Pat Chukwuemeka fsi, visited Awka and Onitsha Custodial Centres, charged the staff to be professional and security conscious, stressing that on no account should there be security lapses in any of the Custodial centres in the State.
Tukur admonished staff especially the Armed Squad to be at alert to avert any incursions from the men of the underworld before, during and after the elections. He charged them to collaborate and seamlessly work with sister agencies who have been drafted to support our men at the Custodial centres for effective security.
He later visited the State Headquarters of the Nigerian Police where he had closed door discussions with the Commissioner of Police Echeng Echeng on security issues. He expressed his satisfaction on the security structure on ground which portends no cause for alarm.
Meanwhile, the Controller of Corrections incharge Command Pat Chukwuemeka had earlier deployed more staff from the state headquarters to beef up security at the four Custodial centres in the State. The synergy with other sister agencies is robust and cordial which led to the heavy presence of the military, police and other security agencies around our Custodial centres to forestall any attempt by hoodlums to launch attack on the facilities.
The DCG had since departed Anambra back to Abuja.
