The Civil Defence, Fire, Immigration and Prisons Services
Board (CDFIPB) has sacked twenty three senior Prisons
officers serving in Kuje Medium Security prison and three
other senior officers serving in Koton Karfe prison for their
alleged complicity in the escape of prisoners from the
respective prisons.
The board took the decision at its emergency meeting held
on Thursday 11th August, 2016.
The dismissal letters dated 12th August, 2016 were signed
by the Secretary to the Board Alhaji A A Ibrahim.
The letter reads in part, “Civil Defence, Fire, Immigration
and Prisons Services Board (CDFIPB) considered the
allegation of serious misconduct arising from your
negligence of duty as leveled against you.
“The Board thereafter approved your immediate dismissal
from the Nigerian Prisons Service.. in line with the
provision of the Public Service Rule 030402 (O) being an
action prejudicial to the security of the State”.
The Controller-General of Prisons in his capacity has also
approved the dismissal of 7 junior staff serving in Kuje
Medium Security prison and 10 other junior staff serving in
Koton Karfe prison also implicated in the escape saga.
The affected officers are to hand over all government
properties within their possession to their immediate
superior and proceed accordingly.
On another related development, the officer in charge of
Nsukka Prison DCP Okonkwo Lawrence and 10 others
have been suspended over the recent jail break in the
prison.
The suspension is to allow for thorough investigation into
the circumstances surrounding the recent jail break.
