Nigeria Correctional Services Bill Signed Into Law


President Muhammadu Buhari has assented to a bill seeking to repeal the Nigerian Prisons Services name, changing the it to Nigeria Correctional Service.

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

According to him, the non-custodial is intended for reformation allowing for community services as punishment so not every offence would attract a prison sentence.
