Published

on

The Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola has again stressed the need to fortify all Custodial facilities across the country against any attack, declaring the facilities as Red Zones to invaders.

Aregbesola gave the
charge while addressing  Squadron Commanders of the Nigerian Correctional Service, today, in Abuja, saying  that they were armed and positioned to directly guard the Centres and defend their integrity.

“Your job is like that of a goalkeeper. The saves he made are hardly reckoned with, but the shots that sailed past him into the net are the issues counted against him.”

” I am aware of the yeoman’s job you are doing in foiling attacks on our institutions, even as the outcry grows on.” he said.

The Minister who said that the meeting was very important, considering the security challenges in the country at the moment, noted that, “The custodial facilities are a symbol of authority of the Nigerian State. They are sacred and inviolable institutions.”
Ogbeni Aregbesola reiterated that the officers and men of the various Commands were empowered by the highest authority in the land to use every means necessary to defend the custodial centres against internal and external aggression.

According to him: “The weapons you carry and the instrument you have are to be lawfully deployed for maximum effect, in protecting the facilities.

” Anyone or group of persons that decide(s) to attack them should not live to regret it.”

” You must not fail because failure means you have contributed to the insecurity in the land by allowing criminals to invade society.”

Giving marching order of the Federal Government to exercising maximum force in the protection of the facilities, Aregbesola said: “Never again must a successful attack be carried out in any of our Custodial Centres.”

“We cannot afford to fail our people, our nation and the President. I declare henceforth, all our Custodial centres as Red Zone,” he emphasised.
