The letter dated 3rd April, 2017 and signed by the Director/Secretary of the Board, Mr. Sunday Dan Ogu, said the suspension of the officers is pending the outcome of all necessary investigations into the matter.
A press statement issued to this effect by the Prisons Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DCP Francis Enobore, said as a result of the development, a new Controller and officer in-charge has been posted to take over the state command and Yola prison respectively, including a medical doctor to oversee the prison clinic.
