Reps Vows To Probe Nigerian Correctional Service Over Poor Welfare Of Staff/Inmates

The House of Representatives has mandated its Committee on Reformation Services to investigate the state of the Nigerian Correctional Service.
The development on Wednesday followed a motion of urgent national importance by the minority leader, Ndudi Elumelu during plenary.
During plenary, concerns were raised about the “deteriorating” working conditions of staff, as well as the welfare of inmates.
The lawmakers also noted that the Arms Unit of the service still parades substandard weapons, despite the N1 billion budget provision in the 2020/2021 budget.
