The Nigeria Correctional Service (NCoS), FCT Command, has begun interagency simulation training to secure all custodial centres in the territory.

The Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the command, Mr Chukwuedo Humphrey, said this in a statement on Sunday in Abuja.

Humphrey said that the maiden interagency simulation training was conducted at the Kuje custodial centre.

He said that the simulation training involved the Correctional Service’s armed squad, Military, Police, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps and Nigeria Immigration Service personnel.

According to him, the simulation training was one of the strategies adopted during the last meeting of security heads in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

“This is to evaluate the security situation in Kuje Custodial Centre and put adequate measures to avoid a repeat of the unfortunate July 5, 2022 jail attack,” he said.

Humphrey quoted the NCoS Controller, FCT command, Mr Ahmed Musa, as encouraging the team to work together and make the custodial centres impenetrable.

The Controller advised people living around the custodial centre not to panic because of the sound of gunshots during the simulation exercise, which will be done periodically to boost the alertness of personnel. (NAN)
