BREAKING: Nigerian Prisons Service renamed, Now Nigeria Correctional Service - #NewBill

President Muhammadu Buhari has assented to the Nigeria Correctional Services Bill which changes the name, “Nigerian Prisons Service”, to “Nigeria Correctional Service”.

According to Senior Special Assistant on National Assembly Matters, Senator Ita Enang, the Nigeria Correctional Service is made up of two faculties: the Custodial and Non- Custodial Service.

He explained that the non-custodial is intended for reformation allowing for community services as punishment so not every offence would attract a prison sentence.
