Jailbreak: NCoS partners with sister agencies in Rivers on security

The Nigerian Correctional Service (NCoS) in Rivers State says it is partnering with sister security agencies to ensure security in custodial centres.

Mr Alex Oditah, the state NCoS Comptroller, stated this in a statement in Port Harcourt on Thursday by the command spokesperson, DSC Juliet Ofoni.

Oditah, who visited the state Comptroller of Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) Mr D. Oni and the state Commandant, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) Mr Bature Aliyu, said the move was to prevent jailbreaks in the state.

“The visits are sequel to the directive from the Comptroller General of Corrections, Mr Haliru Nababa to collaborate with sister security agencies to beef up security around custodial centres in the state.

“This is in view of the incessant attacks on custodial centres in the country,” he said.

He expressed optimism that the partnership would help keep the correctional facilities safe and prevent future attacks from external aggressors. (NAN).
