“In addition, the FCT command has just received from the Controller General of Prisons Ahmed Ja’afaru some appreciable consignment of drugs and medical equipment and these have helped in limiting the frequent trips of our inmates to hospital as we have qualified medical personnel to attend to them.

“The command also maintains a high level working relationship with the National Hospital and the University Teaching Hospital among other government hospitals in cases of referrals and we do not hesitate to refer cases that are beyond our medical team.

“The prisoner in question, Charles Okah has severally been taken to the National Hospital, the last date being on the 5th of December, 2017 for a case of dislodged dental crown and was treated accordingly.

“The Command wishes to state that it has the capacity to respond promptly to health needs of its prisoners.

“Furthermore, neither has Charles Okah nor any other prisoner in the facility complained of lack of medical attention in recent times.

“The command further reiterates and assures the general public that Kuje prison is safe and the inmates are in good health,” the statement said.
