The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, on Tuesday unexpectedly arrived at the Kirikiri Maximum Security Prison in Apapa, Lagos.


Aregbesola’s surprise visit was to galvanize Nigerian prison officials amid intermittent jail attacks across the country.



“Today, I paid a surprise visit to the Kirikiri Maximum and Medium Security Custodial Centres in Kirikiri, Apapa, Lagos State,” the former Osun State governor wrote on his known social media pages.



“During the visit, I acknowledged our servicemen and security agencies, who have sacrificed a lot to keep us safe. I equally charge them to remain eternally vigilant and continuously evolve strategies. And to define these strategies, they have to make decisions based not on fear, but on hard-earned wisdom.


“I also informed our officers and men at the centres that they must fight to defend our institutions, territory, and constitution. It also applies to all others wherever they are posted in Nigeria.


“The ragtag groups of opportunists who attack soft targets must not be allowed to attack our institutions and get away. They must not live to tell the story.”
