Don’t injure prison attackers, shoot to kill, FG tells officers



The federal government has again authorised security operatives stationed at correctional centres across the country to kill any attackers.

This is coming following frequent attacks on correctional centres with lots of prisoners escaping during the process.

The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, gave the authorisation on Monday, while inspecting the facility at the Agodi Custodial Centre, Ibadan.

He said, “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.

“Any effort to breach our facility is not acceptable. Don’t shoot to injure, shoot to kill. Don’t shoot to disable, shoot to kill.

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

“We will do our best regarding your welfare to ensure effective service. I must commend your work for not recording any case of COVID-19 in your facility.

“But most importantly, you must be effective in preventing the penetration of this facility. You must have the capacity to repel viciously any attempt to penetrate this facility.”
