Kuje prison attack: Senate expresses shock at no CCTV, porous security

The Senate expressed shock at the absence of Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras at the Medium Security Custodial Centre in Kuje, Abuja yesterday.

Senate President Ahmad Lawan visited the scene of Tuesday night’s attack in the company of principal officers.

He described the security arrangement at the Centre as unacceptable.

Four inmates and an operative of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) were killed.

Lawan wondered how about 300 terrorists would successfully launch such an attack undetected.

To him, the success of the invasion is symptomatic of the failure of security across the country.

Lawan said the Senate would probe the incident to determine the remote and immediate causes of the attack and to prevent a recurrence.
