Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, has assured that the Federal Government will leave no stone unturned in fishing out the criminals who attacked law enforcement agencies in Imo State last Monday, while also promising to further secure custodial facilities across the country.
Aregbesola made this assurance when he inspected the Nigeria Correctional Service, NCoS, Owerri Custodial Centre which was attacked by unknown gunmen who forcefully released a total of 1,844 inmates in custody.
According to him, “the Federal Government will react appropriately by going after these criminals and make them face the full wrath of the law. We will leave no stone unturned in fishing them out.
“Make no mistake, they will be hunted to the ends of the earth. They can only run, but they cannot hide. We shall bring them to justice, or in the alternative, take justice to them,” Ogbeni Aregbesola fumed.
The Minister was accompanied to the centre by the Acting Controller General of the Nigeria Correctional Service, Mr. John Mrabure and other heads of security agencies in the state.
The Minister who also visited the Command Headquarters of the Service stated that additional security will be provided for all custodial centres from now on, for the safety of personnel and inmates and security of the facilities.
