Rauf Aregbesola, the Minister of Interior, has reportedly ordered prisons officers to shoot anybody who attempts to attack any correctional center in the country.
According to reports, Aregbesola disclosed this while inspecting the facility at the Agodi Custodial Center, Ibadan area of Oyo State.
According to him, “The most important thing is the security impregnability of this facility. Make this facility impregnable.”
He stated, “It is a red zone, a danger 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.”
He ordered that “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.”
He noted, “This is a total embodiment of the state to guarantee the security of the people.”
The Minister urged, “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.”
