Bauchi ‘Jailbreak’ Untrue

by on October 18, 2016
The Nigerian Pris­ons Service (NPS), Bauchi State Com­mand, has de­scribed as untrue and un­founded the recent report alleging that the Nigeria Police Force foiled an at­tempted jail break in Bauchi Centre Prison.
In a statement by its Spokesman, Adam Abuba­kar Jibrin, the Command said that it was disappointed at the level of anxiety the alleged jail break story had generated in all parts of the state.
The NPS therefore reit­erated that, “ the story is unfounded and not true as there was neither such in­cident in Bauchi Central Prison nor indeed any other prison within Bauchi State Command. All the prisons remain calm and peaceful.”
The Command further assured resident of Bauchi State and indeed the gen­eral public that the Nigerian Prisons Service will always do all within its statutory mandate to ensure the safe custody and reformation of inmates under its care.
“While appreciating all the security agencies in the state for their support and commendable working syn­ergy towards fighting crime and maintaining law and order in the state, we wish to advise the media to adhere strictly to journalism eth­ics by verifying their stories from appropriate authorities before going to press,” the NPS noted.
