The Controller of Nigerian Prison Service (NPS), Bauchi Command, CP Sulaiman T.Sulaiman, has promised to ensure regular and timely transportations of Awaiting Trial Inmates (ATI) to various courts in the state where they have cases.

CP Sulaiman gave the assurance during his inspection tours of prison formations across the state.

The inspection tour commenced barely a month after he assumed duty as the new Controller of Prisons in charge of Bauchi Command.

He has so far visited eleven out of the 13 prisons in the state, including Darazo, Misau, Gamawa, Zaki and Azare, Jama’are, Shira, Burra, Ningi, Bauchi and Alkaleri prisons.

During the inspection tour, the Controller inspected prison books, interacted with both staff and inmates of the various prisons. He urged the staff to be disciplined and diligent in the discharge of their duties, avoid trafficking of items in and out of the prisons, and guard against spreading rumours and indiscriminate taking of loans that could lead to financial embarrassment.

The Controller also admonished prison inmates to remain calm and peaceful in their prisons. He assured them of the Service’s readiness to cater for their welfare and assured the awaiting trials amongst them that they would be taken to courts for their trials as at when due.

The Controller commended the officers in charge stations for the quality of ration they give the inmates. He also commended them for the good working synergy between the prisons and other security agencies in their domains as he was jointly received by other security services in most of the Prisons he visited. He implored them to maintain the good relationship.

Mr. Sulaiman visited Emirs and District Heads of the communities hosting all the prisons he toured. He commended the traditional institutions for the support they give to prisons in their respective domains. He urged them to continue assisting the prisons where necessary as government alone cannot shoulder the responsibility.
