Aregbesola Should Resign Or Be Sacked, 15 Jailbreak Under His Watch – HURIWA

Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, a civil rights advocacy group, has demanded the immediate dismissal of Interior Minister Rauf Aregbesola for his failure to stop the country’s ongoing attacks on prisons.
In a statement released on Thursday and bearing the signature of its National Coordinator, Emmanuel Onwubiko, HURIWA expressed its position and denounced the jailbreaks that occurred while Aregbesola was in office.

The group stated that, in the last five years, there have been over 15 jailbreaks under the former Osun State governor while over 3,000 inmates have escaped from custody.

The PUNCH had reported that terrorists attacked the Kuje Correctional Centre on Tuesday night, heavily armed with explosives, which led to the loss of lives.

During the attack, the terrorists reportedly freed over 600 inmates, including 64 suspected Boko Haram members who were held in custody.

HURIWA also urged the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), to quit asking rhetorical questions on how the intelligence system of the country failed to detect Tuesday’s attack at Kuje prison in Abuja on social media.

The group demanded the President immediately set up a judicial panel of inquiry on prison attacks in the country and ensure that such assaults on the entire security apparatus of Nigeria do not recur
