He stated that although prison was not a revenue generating agency, yet the service was able to generate about N40.1 million in 2016 which had been paid into the national treasury.

He reiterated the need to relocate prisons from urban centers, adding that massive rehabilitation was urgently needed in most of the prisons to avoid jail breaks.

According to him, out of 241 prisons in the country, about 200 were constructed in the colonial days dating back to 1896 and about 139 sandwiched in the metropolis.

“There is need to relocate some prisons from urban centres because there is no room for expansion and some of them are over 100 years old,” Ahmed said.
