The Plateau chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, has condemned the recent attack on Jos custodial centre by gunmen yet to be identified.

Chairman of the association in the state, Rev. Fr Polycarp Lubo, made the condemnation on Thursday in Jos in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

Saga Gist had reported that gunmen invaded the custodial centre on Sunday evening, killing a personnel of the Nigerian Correctional Service (NCoS) and nine inmates. They also set about 252 inmates free.

Deputy Controller General of NCoS, in charge of Operations, Mr Mohammed Tukur had blamed the incident on paucity of modern equipment and other gadgets.

The CAN Chairman described the attack as “sad, unfortunate and frightening”, adding that the attack was a bad omen for Nigerians.

According to him, with the huge number of inmates that have fled, the security situation of the country is under threat.

“The attack on the Jos custodial centre is a sad one; CAN on the Plateau condemns it in totality.

“With the huge number of inmates that have escaped, it is clear that our security situation is still under threat.

“This is because there are hardened criminals among inmates that fled; they will go back into the society and continue to unleash evil.

“So, I wish to strongly call on the government to provide modern and adequate equipment to the Service in order to avert a similar situation in the future,” he said.

Lubo called on residents of the state to be security conscious, particularly as yuletide approaches and report any suspicious activity within their vicinity to security agencies.

The Chairman appealed to residents of the community to eschew violence and embrace peace for the overall development of the state.

He also advised them against reprisals and urged them to live in peace at all times
