The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, during inspection of Correctional Centres in Oyo State, issued directives to officials of the Nigerian Correctional Service to shoot art sight anyone attempting to attack prison facility in the country.

Aregbesola talking to senior officers at the Agodi Custodial Centre of the NCoS during an official inspection tour of the facility, ordered that the officers must make it impossible for any attack to penetrate the facility, insisting that “such an attempt must remain an attempt.” He cautioned that any attempt to attack correctional centres in Nigeria must henceforth be resisted with brutal force.

Aregbesola also inspected the newly built maximum facility at Olomi-Olojuoro area of Ibadan, Oyo State.

The Minister declared: “The most important thing is the security impregnability of this facility.

“This is a red zone, dangerous zone. “Whoever attempt to breach the facility is already dead. He must not live to tell the story.

“Any effort to breach our facility is not acceptable. Don’t shoot to injure but shoot to kill for any reason.

“This is a total embodiment of the state to guarantee the security of the people.”

Aregbesola assured: “We will do our best on your welfare to ensure effective service.

“You must have the capacity to repel viciously any attempt to attack or invade this facility and an attempt must remain an attempt.”
the Interior Minister further directed the demolition of shops and business centres within the prison facility.
