Speaking on Premium Times Twitter space on Monday July 11, days after suspected terrorists attacked Kuje prison and freed some inmates, Nababa admitted that they received intelligence on possible attack but the information was not narrowed down to the Kuje Custodial Centre.

He said he boosted the security on ground across prisons in the region but the capacity was not enough.

Nababa said;

“The jail attacks are new to us since the emergence of ENDSARS. The NCS lacks the personnels. We need the deployment of ICT to see how we can ensure the prevention of the occurrences and the completion of the 3,000 capacity of Custodial centers in the six geographical political zones.

“The NCS infrastructure is not built to withstand this new trend of crime that is facing us but the 3,000 capacity will go a long way to forestall some of these attacks and then the procurement of operations vehicles because our guns cannot withstand what those people come with.”
