The National Association of Seadogs, NAS has come out to say that Federal Government should fully implement the Coronavirus Disease (Covid-19) Health Protection Regulations in the nation’s correctional facilities and custodial centres.

This was recently revealed in a letter by the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, which was signed by Kolawole Anderson Oseh, Chapter President.

According to him, it is possible to achieve this for the inmates of these facilities because they are citizens like every other Nigerian that deserve to be protected amid the pandemic.

He added that in the spirit of humanistic ideals and social justice, NAS shall be embarking on the payment of fines on behalf of some inmates within Abuja correctional facilities and its environs.

His words, “We have also stated our firm belief that with commitment as a people, we can achieve these for the inmates of these facilities and centres who are as well entitled to the benefits and protection of these Regulations just like every other Nigerian.”

“Additionally, in the spirit of humanistic ideals and social justice, we shall be embarking on the payment of fines on behalf of some inmates within Abuja correctional facilities and its environs, especially female inmates who have been convicted of simple offences and misdemeanors come 20th February 2021 being the World Day of Social Justice.”

“We specifically urge the governments at different levels in Nigeria to as a matter of urgency consider “social distancing in addition to other Covid-19 protocols for the inmates in Correctional Facilities, Remand Homes, Holding Cells, Military Detention Centres, amongst other centres for care and custody of persons in line with social justice and International Best Practice.”
