Prison break: I’m aware of security lapses in Kuje prison- Dambazzau


Following last weekend Prison Break at Medium prison in Kuje, the Minister of Interior, Gen. Abdurahaman Dambazzau, has attributed the incident to security lapses which he said he noticed the last time he visited the place.
Two inmate standing trial for murder at the weekend escaped and were recaptured following the jail break incidence at the prison custody.
Speaking with newsmen in Abuja, shortly after he was taken round the facility and briefed on how the prisoners escaped, Dambazzau said investigation into the matter would be taken to a logical conclusion.
On what was responsible for the jail break, the Minister said: “The last time I was here I noticed some security gap in the prison, I made my observation then with the former CG with the present controller prison and I notice the security gap and I told them precisely what to do but unfortunately this has occurred.
“Two prisoners escaped. And especially these are prisoners who are awaiting trial for murder. So, this is a very serious issue that I cannot be happy about. I think those lapses were the ones that made it possible for the escape.”
He assured that the present government will do everything  possible to ensure that Nigerian Prison become a better place for inmates who pass through them.
