The Controller General of the Nigeria Prisons Service (NPS), Ja’afaru Ahmed on Friday approved the dismissal of three (3) junior prison officers for smuggling prohibited items capable of compromising security into the Prison Yard.

Those affected are IP Samaila Inusa, PA 11 Jonathan Ibrahim and PA 11 Adamu Jethro.

This followed the recommendation of the Zonal Disciplinary Committee that found the officers guilty of secreting illicit items such as Indian hemp (cannabis) and other intoxicants into the prison for inmates.

It should be noted that apart from fueling indiscipline and the health hazard on the inmates, access to cannabis and intoxicants has been implicated in a number of escapes and jailbreaks recorded in the past, thus jeopardizing security of life and property of innocent personnel and inmates including the larger society.

According to a statement issued by the NPS, Public Relations Officer, Francis Enobore: “the Controller General has resolved to ensure that proven cases of indiscipline against any personnel particularly on offences that are capable of causing security breach, are promptly meted with appropriate sanctions according to law.

“While this action is to serve as deterrence to would be incorrigible individuals, the Prisons boss further warned that stiffer punishment awaits anyone found guilty of compromising standards and good conduct expected of a Correction Officer.”

  1. Good job..these are the bad eggs that needs to be weeded out.same will open prison doors for the incarcerated hoodlums to escape and they will turn around to blame jail break.their likes are in every agency and parastatals.chase them out..

  2. Let them come back into the labour market and repent for compromising and causing their present joblessness. Maybe they can now take up full time jobs as stuff suppliers. Mchweeew!

  3. If you ever watched the movie ‘Prison Break’, you will understand that it is typical of most if not all prison systems. The dismissed ones were only the unlucky ones, many of those warders do it
