Three days after the Nigerian Army withdrew its personnel from Correctional Centres across Ondo State, the soldiers have now returned.
This was disclosed by the Governor of the state, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu on Saturday night.
On Wednesday, Akeredolu raised an alarm over the action of the soldiers after he expressed worries that the move could encourage jailbreak in the state.
While stressing that the withdrawal of the soldiers was a security risk, Governor Akeredolu disclosed in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Richard Olatunde that; “A federal facility like the Correctional Centre should not have been left without deserving security for any reason. However, the return of the soldiers to the facilities is a positive development."
“Both the Nigerian Army and the Correctional Centres belong to the Federal Government. We will continue to do our best to give the necessary support when the need arises."
