Abba Kyari

The spokesperson of the Nigerian Correctional Service (NCS) has assured that there would be no special treatment for Abba Kyari and others in the Kuje Prison.

Recall that the suspended police officer whose trial is ongoing over alleged drug trafficking was remanded in Kuje Prison by a court of law.

Dismissing insinuations that they could be harmed, the service spokesperson said Kyari and others are safe in their facilities.

Revealing that Kyari and the other police officers would be kept in awaiting trials cells and would remain under the close watch of different security agencies assigned to protect them, Public Relations Officer of the Federal Capital Territory Command of the Nigerian Correctional Service, Mr Humphrey also maintained that prison authorities do not treat anyone special.

The statement read;

“The case is a normal procedure for us. He is being kept where awaiting trials persons are and his co- Defendants as well. We are surprised that someone said he is not safe. How can someone say the facility is not safe…is it in his house that the inmates would be safe?

“The facility is a safe facility, we have all the security apparatus here, the army is there, the police, the DSS, and our men. So if anyone is saying the facility is not safe…is it from internal incursion of external incursion. We are here as professionals and we will do our jobs to the best of our ability.”
