UK Government To Build Prison In Nigeria To Transfer Prisoners From Britain by Thanks18(m): 9:51am On Mar 08
Ministers have drawn up plans to build a prison in Nigeria to enable the government to transfer prisoners from Britain.

The proposed 112-bed wing, built to United Nations specifications in the Kiri Kiri prison in Lagos, is to be built as part of a compulsory prisoner transfer agreement.

It will cost just under £700,000, according to a statement submitted to Parliament by Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson on Wednesday evening.
"As part of this agreement, eligible prisoners serving criminal sentences in Nigeria and the UK can be returned to complete their sentences in their respective countries," Mr Johnson said.

It follows a deal reached between the two countries signed in 2014.
But poor conditions in some prisons overseas have created a legal barrier to returning foreigners convicted in the UK.
"The Government believes that wherever possible foreign nationals should serve their sentences in their own country," a Foreign Office spokesperson told Sky News.

"Helping Nigeria to improve its prison conditions and increase prison capacity will enable us to transfer more prisoners to Nigeria, which will in turn free up prison places in the UK."

Deals to transfer prisoners in UK jails to their countries of origin have been made with Albania, Rwanda, Jamaica and Libya, and well as Nigeria.
In 2015 the Government pitched an ambitious £25m project to build a 1,500 bed prison in Jamaica, with the aim of sending more than 300 Jamaican inmates with sentences of more than four years there.

But the Jamaican government rejected the deal, with local media quoting ministers as saying the offer was not beneficial to Jamaica and did not cover the prison's full cost.

Mr Johnson said tenders for the planned Nigerian jail had been placed and suppliers identified, bringing the project's total cost to £695,525 including support, monitoring and evaluation.

The bill will be met by the CSSF (Conflict, Stability and Security Fund), he said.
According to House of Commons statistics there were 320 Nigerian nationals in prisons in England and Wales at the end of 2016.

Foreign nationals make up about 12% of the prison population compared to about 9% of the general population.

The annual overall cost of a prison place in England and Wales is about £38,000, according to the Ministry of Justice.

Is that the empowerment the British Government would wish for Britons? Take crime off our streets by building industries that will dignify humanity here. If that is the reparations we can get from the years of slavery, colonialism and stolen artefacts, we will make do with that...

Is there really anything Nigeria government will never need support from other countries to do?



Imagine UK government building prison for us again in our own country, just because we don't meet up with recommended standards when transferring inmates..




Nigeria is a bad example...

The prisons will most likely be sited in the south east, that has always been our sole share of federal presence.

Who agreed to this shitty agreement?

My goodness?!

Why don't they return the monies recovered from these criminals and corrupt individuals first?

If this happens the this country is DEFINITELY a sh!t-h0le!

Jamaica of all countries refused this happening in their country, but our shithead leaders want to accept free stuff as usual, without asking what is really behind this move.

So all those radical Islamist that have been indoctrinated by Pakistanis (with links to Isis and Al qaeda ) in prison, will follow come back too?

So they get to keep whatever illegal wealth they confiscated from these criminals and the FGN gets to oversee the welfare of these prisoners with tax payers money?
