Jail break: NCoS Organises Training On Joint Interagency Stimulation

To protect all detention facilities in the territory, the Nigerian Correctional Service (NCoS), FCT Command, has started a collaborative interagency simulation training.

This was said in a statement issued by the command’s public relations officer (PRO), Mr. Chukwuedo Humphrey, on Sunday in Abuja.

According to Humphrey, the first combined interagency simulation training took place inside the Kuje detention facility.

He said that the Correctional Service armed squad, military, police, civil defense, and immigration service officials all participated in the stimulating training.

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 CG 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.
