He added that the service had migrated from punitive to restorative and corrective approaches to offenders’ management.

He said this was reflected in the staff’s outward appearance, mental construct, policy approach and other service endeavours.

Mr Salisu said more weapons were acquired and personnel placed on red alert to avert further attack on the custodial centres.

“Before now, our men were trained to prevent attacks from within, but they have now been trained to counter external attacks on our facilities. Arms and ammunition have been procured, and we now have a presidential directive that anyone who attacks the custodial centres should not leave to tell the story,” added Mr Salisu. “Our men have been put on red alert to gun down anyone who intrudes on our custodial centres.”  (NAN)
