    Nigerian Correctional Service NCoS FCT Command has confirmed the death of an inmate of Kuje Custodial Centre after a protracted illness.

    This is contained in a statement by the Public Relations Officer of the command Mr Chukwuedo Humphrey on Monday in Abuja.
    Humphrey said that the inmate was admitted into Kuje custodial centre in 2019 and upon mandatory medical examination he was diagnosed of some chronic ailments

    He said that the inmate was immediately placed on special medical management by a combined team of medical personnel in the facility.

    This he said was as well as occasional referrals to the University of Abuja Teaching hospital Gwagwalada when necessary

    ” Unfortunately when the inmate’s health deteriorated over the weekend all efforts by the medical personnel to resuscitate him failed

    “A peaceful prayer session is being organised by the staffers and fellow inmates of the deceased for the repose of his soul” he said

    Humphrey quoted the Controller of the command Ahmed Musa as expressing his condolences to the family and friends of the late inmate Musa reinstated his commitment to putting the health and general welfare of inmates and staffers as topmost priorities.

    He further advised those on special medical attention to ensure strict adherence to expert instructions to overcome health challenges since drugs were available to them at no cost.
