Nigerian Senators at plenary

The Nigerian Senate has summoned the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola; the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, and the Comptroller-General of the Nigerian Correctional Service, Haliru Nababa, over recent jailbreaks across the country.

The Senate also directed its Committee on Interior to commence an investigation to unravel circumstances behind incessant jailbreaks in the country.

The Senate gave the directive to its committee after a Federal Lawmaker Senator Istifanus Gyang drew the attention of legislators to the attack on a correctional center in Jos, Plateau State over the weekend and the attack on two communities in Bassa Local Government Area of Plateau State.
