The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, has ordered prisons officers to shoot dead anybody who attempts to attack any correctional centre in the country.
Aregbesola gave this order on Monday, while inspecting the facility at the Agodi Custodial Centre, Ibadan.
The minister said any attack on any correctional centre is a suicide attempt and perpetrators must not be allowed to live to tell the story.
“The most important thing is the security impregnability of this facility. Make this facility impregnable.
“It is a red zone, dangerous zone. Whoever attempts to breach the security here is already dead. He must not live to tell the story. Other people will tell his or her story.” Aregbesola stated.
