The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola said officials of correctional centres were rejecting new suspects brought to them by police because COVID-19 safety protocols were not observed in requesting the correctional services.

The minister stated this while addressing newsmen after defending his ministry’s 2021 budget proposal before the Senate Committee on Interior.

He said: “The police did not observe necessary Covid-19 health protocols in requesting the correctional services to remand the suspects.

“The prison formations across the country have been instructed on necessary guidelines to ensure safety.”

He said the ministry would bring a supplementary budget to the National Assembly to rebuild all the correctional centres destroyed during the unrest that trailed the #EndSARS protests.
