Aregbesola Orders Shoot to Kill During Jailbreak, Says Enough is Enough
By Alabidun Shuaib AbdulRahman
The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, on Monday directed the personnel of Nigerian Correctional Service to always aim to “shoot to kill” anyone that attack the nation’s correctional centres, saying any officer with no such gut should be redeployed.
He gave the directive at the unveiling of the new service logo and uniforms and the commissioning of a new staff quarters, ICT infrastructure and operational vehicles at the Service headquarters.
Twenty-five personnel who displayed gallantry to repel a bandits’ attack on a custodial facility in Niger State were rewarded by the minister at the event.
Aregbesola, while commending the 25 personnel for their act of gallantry, expressed dismay that some personnel in other custodial centres chickened out when faced with attacks by criminals.
