Kirikiri To Become New Home Of Nigerian Prisoners In UK As Britain Is Set To Comply With Prisoner Transfer Agreement
Nigerians imprisoned in the United Kingdom are set to be transferred to a new wing in Kirikiri Prison in Lagos Nigeria, UK government has announced.
According to Reuters, the new 112-bed wing which will be built at Kirikiri Prison will cost 700,000 pounds to be in compliant with United Nations standards and make it easier for Britain to comply with a prisoner transfer agreement it signed with Nigeria back in 2014.
British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said a supplier has been hired to build the 112-bed wing to complete the prisoner transfer.
The British prison system has been showing signs of severe strain in recent years, with overcrowding, rising suicide rates and a growing problem with drug trafficking and other crimes within jails that were sometimes built in the Victorian era.
