Sola Fasure, a media aide to the Minister said in a statement that the minister made the call at the opening of a two-day retreat for senior management of the service in Sokoto, Sokoto State on Monday. 2023: Neither Atiku nor Tinubu can fix Nigeria – Ango Abdullahi Many inmates are still on the run after coordinated attacks on custodial facilities in many states of the country that started in 2020.   The group called on President Muhammadu Buhari to open an independent and thorough investigation into the issue as uncovered by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) to fully dig deep and expose the true source and ownership of the recovered assets/items to ensure the perpetrators and their accomplices are judiciously prosecuted and adequately sanctioned. He said the strategies and deliberations at the retreat should be centred around solutions for recapturing all escaped inmates to safeguard communities that may become prey to criminal activities of escaped inmates. In the letter, the group commended Buba Marwa, chairman of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), on his efforts to tackle drug trafficking and abuse in the country. Aregbesola urged that as the officers deliberate, strategize and set targets for the next five years, they must ensure that the biodata of all inmates is harmonised with sister agencies, the Nigeria Financial Unit (NFIU), all banks and the INTERPOL to track all escaped inmates. The statement read in part,"The Civil Society Legislative Advocacy Centre (CISLAC)/Transparency International (TI) Chapter in Nigeria is seriously concerned by billions of Naira cash alongside other luxurious items reportedly uncovered during a recent raid at the home of a military contractor, K. He said: “It is also very important to have their fingerprints, pictures and other details you have with you to be harmonised with them. If there will be reconciliation, it is not pictures that you will see first.

“Retreats are for bonding, contemplating purpose and setting future goals” and a major issue that must be considered during this retreat is the decongestion of custodial facilities.   "While the nation’s Defence spending has hitherto been buried in absolute secrecy and institutionalised corruption that impede efficient services and nation’s security, the fact-finding as detected by the anti-graft institution, has indeed validated the persistent public outcry by CISLAC/TI Nigeria for transparency and accountability in Defence procurement and spending. “We join the generality of Nigerians to commend your efforts and congratulate you on the occasion of the 2022 United Nations International Day Against Drug Abuse for the victories you have won in the fight against drug abuse.” He pointed out that during the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, “one of the policies we quickly put in place then was the decongestion programme under which thousands of inmates were released on compassionate ground.” “The follow-up to that is the consideration that we should find further ways to keep decongesting our facilities.   "Diversion of Defence and Security funds to private pockets through procurement process constitutes a serious threat to Nigeria’s Defence and Security sector and services; and has left our security operatives ill-equipped, poorly-remunerated and demoralised in spite the persistently increased Defence budgetary allocation and spending from 2011 to date. “We started work on the idea of compiling the list of convicted inmates serving light terms for not too serious offences, who were in custody because they could not pay their fines” Meanwhile, the Controller General of the service, Haliru Nababa, has said that the two-day retreat will not only afford the hierarchy of the agency the opportunity to re-strategise and bond towards efficiency in service delivery, it also serves to provide a clear perception of set targets.”. He said the current capacity of the 244 custodial facilities in the country stands at 58,278 as against the population of 75,000 inmates it now holds, leading to congestion of inmates, worsened by recent incessant attacks which were externally organised and executed. Consequently, Defence personnel and Security operatives are rendered incapacitated from curbing violence, insurgency, banditry and kidnapping.

While declaring the retreat open, the Governor of Sokoto State, Alh. Aminu Tambuwal, who was represented by his deputy, Manir Dan’iya, stated that his government will continue to support the NCoS in achieving its goal of reforming and rehabilitating its inmate.   "This includes other numerous high-profile cases of corruption that are deliberately left unattended or granted with Presidential pardons; hence, giving a clear indication of lop-sidedness and selective fight against corruption in the public sector.
