The Nigerian Prisons Service (NPS) has denied a media report on an alleged attempted jailbreak by some convicted soldiers in Yola Prison in Adamawa State.

The spokesperson of the NPS, Mr. Ope Fatinukun, in a statement in Abuja, a copy of which was made available to News Express, said: “There were no pandemonium, commotion nor gun shots fired into air in Yola prison as reported by some media.

“What really happened were arguments among inmates around 7.30 pm after prayers on Thursday 27th November 2014.The argument was quickly brought under control.”

Fatinukun further added that the Controller of the Adamawa State Prison Command, CP AS Ekijere was in the Yola prison on 28th November 2014 for his fourth quarter visit to all prisons under his command between 8am and 3pm.

For legal and security reasons, the Prison spokesperson also urged the media to always use appropriate nomenclatures in describing the inmates. He said “Inmates can either be addressed as convicted inmates (CM) or Awaiting Trial inmates (ATI) rather than the derogatory words of incarcerated soldiers or civilians.”
