The Nigerian Correctional Service (NCoS), Lagos State Command, on Tuesday said the state government had released the second batch of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to the service.
The Spokesman of the command, Supt. Rotimi Oladoku made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.
NAN reports that the items donated were hand gloves, face marks, inferred thermometers and sanitisers.
Oladokun said the gesture was part of the preventive measures taken by the state government, especially at custodial centres, to contain the spread of the virus.
“The first set of the PPE was released to the command on March 27 and the command also received the second bath on April 20,” he said.
According to Oladokun, the Lagos state NCoS Controller, Mr Sam Iyakoregha, received the items on behalf of the Controller-General of NCoS, Ahmed Ja’afaru.
“The NCoS thanks the Lagos state government for this tremendous support. The NCoS is well-positioned to prevent COVID-19 in the custodial centres,” he said.
