The Senate has directed its Committee on Interior to carry out a full-scale investigation on the rising cases of jailbreaks across the country.

It asked the Committee to determine the status of correctional centres nationwide with a view to finding out their challenges in order to prevent future recurrence of jailbreaks.

The Committee was also directed to summon the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola and the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami over the menace of incessant jailbreaks across the country.

The panel is also to summon the Comptroller-General of the Nigerian Correctional Service, Haliru Nababa.

The Upper Chamber also commended the “judiciary for the recent judgement of the Federal High Court declaring all bandits and all other insurgents as terrorists which has now empowered the military to take appropriate actions against them.”

The Senate further called for the reinforcement of physical protection system and security mechanism at Correctional Centers across the nation by the Ministry of Interior to forestall further attempts at jail break.

It added that the attacks on Ta’egbe and Durbi communities in Plateau North and other communities across the nation required more decisive and proactive measures by the Chief of Defence Staff and the Inspector General of Police to law abiding citizens from incessant terror attacks.

The Senate observed a minute silence in honour of victims who lost their lives at Ta’egbe and Durbi communities and those who were killed at the Jos Correctional Centre.
