The Nigerian Correctional Service, FCT Command wishes to confirm the death of an inmate after a protracted illness.
The inmate was admitted to Kuje custodial centre in 2019 and upon mandatory medical examination, he was diagnosed with some chronic ailments.
He was immediately placed on special medical management by a combined team of medical personnel in the facility as well as occasional referrals to the University of Abuja Teaching hospital, Gwagwalada, Abuja 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 staff and fellow inmates of the deceased for the repose of his soul.
The Controller of the Command, Ahmed Musa Ahmed while expressing his condolences to the family and friends of the late inmate, reinstated his commitment to putting the health and general welfare of inmates and staff on the front burner.
He further advised those on special medical attention to ensure strict adherence to expert instructions to overcome health challenges since drugs are available to them at no cost.
