Rauf Aregebesola, Nigeria’s Minister of Interior, has announced that the investigation into the attack on a correctional facility in the Kuje area of the federal capital territory (FCT) has been completed.
Aregbesola made the announcement on Tuesday in Abuja during the fourth edition of the federal government’s scorecard series.
In July, gunmen attacked the correctional facility, causing hundreds of inmates, including Boko Haram suspects, to flee.
Giving an update on the probe into the attack, the minister said the outcome of the investigation would not be made public because it is a “security document”.
“It is still a security document,” NAN quoted Aregbesola as saying.
Aregbesola also said the President Muhammadu Buhari administration has made significant strides in the fight against insurgency.
“In 2015, the insurgents were holding territories in some local government areas in Adamawa, Borno, and Yobe states,” he said.
“But as we speak, they have been dislodged. Yes, there are challenges here and there, but there is no nation without challenges.”
The minister also said the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has done much work to ensure that it contributes its quota in enhancing security across the country.
“The service has also been involved in the protection of lives and property of Nigerians. Especially along the major expressways across the country,” he added.
