Kirikiri & Ikoyi Prisons Are No More Suitable For Present Locations – Ambode by emmalezdigital: 10:22am On Mar 27, 2018


Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode has restated the commitment of his administration to partner with the Nigerian Prisons Service to address some of the challenges affecting the prisons system in the State.



The Governor, who spoke through the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Tunji Bello, during a study visit of delegates from the Nigerian Prisons Service Academy, Ijebu Igbo, Ogun State, added that the State Government is willing to collaborate with them in meeting some of their demands and enabling them to live up to expectations in the State.



He informed that despite the State Government’s awareness that the Kirikiri Maximum Security Prison and Ikoyi Prison have become overpopulated as well as unsuitable for the present locations, the State Government cannot relocate them without the consent of the Federal Government.



Ambode stressed that the State Government’s desire to relocate the prisons to places like Badagry, Ikorodu and Epe axis where vacant land exists was made unachievable by the refusal of the last government at the centre. He explained that a clear example was the reforms that the State Government introduced in the Judiciary which not only improved welfare packages of judicial officers but strengthened the institution against corruption.



The Governor stated that since the inception of Democracy, the Government has continued to develop infrastructure in the State because the present administration places so much value on human capital and ensures everything works for all citizens in a bid to reduce crime in the society. Earlier in his Speech, the Commandant of Prisons Academy, Ijebu-Igbo, and the head of the team Ag. ACG Benson Oluwayiopese stated that Lagos was chosen as a place to visit because the State has become the leading light in the comity of States with a great leader behind its success story.



He added that the achievements that have been recorded by the present Administration resonate across the world. The Commandant thereafter presented a plaque titled “Exemplary Leadership Award” to the Governor through the SSG, Mr. Tunji Bello.

They want to take the land and convert it to Tinubu's property.

Wrong, I believe Prisons should be Faraway in the Bush in case of Prison Break. The Kirikiri and Ikoyi prisons are too close to residential areas and should be relocated to the Bush in Ikorodu btw Lagos and Ogun state (Ijebu axis) and also create more space for a bigger prison cells to accommodate more inmates.

Una well done, make dem port hardened criminals come Ikorodu that is just recovering from Badoo Onslaught, U guys tried . I don't know what Ikorodu has benefited from this present administration despite it being in the same senatorial constituency with EPE and much bugger in terms of size. selecting EPE out for giant strides in development is very OBVIOUS

Thus, Gov Akinwunmi Ambode on getting approval should cite those two prisons in EPE as it will afford the prisoners to be always on time for their court cases in Mainland Lagos courtesy of the good roads constructed by this present Govt.

True. I wonder why prisons should be so close to residential places. Prisons in Benin City are built same way too

They have identified land they want to convert to personal property. Let them bring the proposal along with the intended use of the land with a commitment to forfeit the land to Fed government if not put to agreed use.

Imagine, Lagos has been reclaiming every piece of land including water. Now they want to reclaim prisons. Maybe next thing would be cemeteries.

I'm not too sure but that particular spot might be an underdeveloped area when it was sited but development has now caught up with it and now in the city.

It will really take him to relocate the prisons, I think the government should be killing the deadliest criminals amongst them every day to reduce the congestion, while they gradually plan how to relocate the prisons

The prison lands in Lagos are prime property. LSG will gladly give them one built Bush in Badagary is they will give up Ikoyi and Kirikiri locations.

While I understand the need for prisons to be far from the metropolis, it will necessitate a more responsive security network. Imagine a prison break in Epe without a matrix of well trained security respondents in place. The criminals may breach the state borders and that's it. So if Ikoyi or kirikiri prison isn't causing traffic, leave it where it is. To build new prisons complete with residential quarters for staff will be huge.
