•Owerri Prisons.
•Owerri Prisons.

The Nigerian Prisons Service has refuted a publication in one of the daily newspapers titled ‘Police Raid Owerri Prisons, recover 264 Mobile Phones ...” , stressing that “the story is not true as no incident of such ever took place. This falsehood is clandestinely designed to malign the image of the Prisons Service.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the Controller-General of Prisons, Ja’afaru Ahmed and three other senior officers were in Owerri prisons on Sunday 29th January, 2017 in the wake of the attack on Prisoners and staff at Owerri High Court,” the prisoners’ authorities said in a statement issued by its spokesman, DCP Francis Enobore.

“The CGP in the company of other heads of security agencies in Imo State including the Police Commissioner, Commandant NSCDC, Comptroller of Immigration, Director SSS, Controller of Prisons and the Prisons Zonal Coordinator visited the scene of the incident and at no time was any raid carried out or mobile phones recovered.

“The author of the malicious story is a mere mischief maker only out to satisfy an unknown purpose. Necessary actions have however commenced to unravel the intent of the publication,” the Prisons said.
