The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, has on Monday directed prison officers to shoot dead anyone that attempts to attack any prison in the country.

According to him, attacks on prisons in the country will no longer be tolerated, adding that attacks on the correctional centres were embarrassing to the country. 

The Minister spoke while inspecting the facilities at Agodi Custodial Centre in Ibadan.

He implored the prison officers to henceforth make an attack on the prison a suicidal mission for anyone that makes such an attempt, adding that attacks on correctional centres must be history in Nigeria.

He said, “The most important thing is the security impregnability of this facility. Make this facility impregnable.

“It is a red zone, a danger zone. Whoever attempts to breach the security here is already dead. He must not live to tell the story. Other people will tell his or her story.

“Any effort to breach our facility is not acceptable. Don’t shoot to injure, shoot to kill. Don’t shoot to disable, shoot to kill.

“This is a total embodiment of the state to guarantee the security of the people.

“We will do our best regarding your welfare to ensure effective service. I must commend your work for not recording any case of COVID-19 in your facility.

“But most importantly, you must be effective in preventing the penetration of this facility. You must have the capacity to repel viciously any attempt to penetrate this facility.”
