NCoS probes officer’s alleged affair with prisoner’s wife

The Nigeria Correctional Service (NCS) Federal Capital Command has begun investigation into allegation of intimate  relationship between an officer, Assistant Controller of Corrections AbdulRahman Musa and wife of an inmate under custody at Suleja Suleja Custodial centre.

The Controller of Corrections FCT Command, Dr. AbdulRahman Maiyaki, disclosed this in a statement signed by the Command’s spokesperson,  Chukwuedo Humphrey, on Tuesday. 

“Controller Maiyaki upon getting the report has further informed the Controller General of Nigerian Correctional Service, Haliru Nababa mni, and acting upon the directives of the Controller General, has instituted a full blown investigation into the matter and also for unhindered access to investigation and justice, Mr Musa has been deployed out of Suleja Custodial centre,” the statement said. 

“The Controller wishes to assure all parties involved that upon the report of the investigation, justice will be served as the service does not hide any staff who paints the behaviour and good morals of the service in bad light. 

“He further encouraged the members of the public to continue to have faith in the officers and men of the command as they are doing their best in ensuring that the inmates under their custody are effectively reformed and upon discharge, become better citizens of the society.”
