The Ag. Controller General of Corrections, John Mrabure, said that safe custody of inmates is a critical mandate of Nigeria Correctional Service, which must not be compromised under any circumstance.

The CGC, who stated this in a statement by the NCoS Spokesman, Francis Enobore, on Sunday, implored all staff members to deploy their wealth of knowledge and experience to maintain the sanctity of all custodial centres

He charged officers and men of the NCoS to strengthen security-watch over custodial centres across the country.

Mrabure, who paid an unscheduled working visit to Medium Security Custodial Centre Kuje, Federal Capital Territory, cautioned against nonchalant attitude to work and advised personnel to get themselves familiarized with the provisions of the Standing Order to guide their engagement with inmates.

He also used the opportunity to inspect the hospital, kitchen, poultry, K-9 unit as well as the Drugs and Water Factory, where he gave specific instructions on how to enhance administration of the centre and deliver better service to the inmates.

This could be regarded as his first official visit as the Corrections’ boss since his appointment on 21 July 2021.

Recall that in the wake of the retirement of Ja’afaru Ahmed as the CGC on 21 July 2021, John Mrabure was appointed as Acting Controller-General of Corrections being the most senior officer in the Service pending the appointment of a substantive Controller General.
