Wadai, however, said there was no report of such incident in any of the facilities, saying that all the inmates were safe and highly protected from the virus.
“The attention of the NCoS, Kaduna State Command, has been drawn to a news item being circulated by some mischief makers alleging that an inmate in one of the custodial centres in the State has contracted COVID-19. “

Wadai praised the public for their understanding and support in ensuring that the virus did not spread to the correctional facilities.
He said that the command would continue to maintain absolute adherence to safety measures in other to safeguard the inmates and staff, including visitors to the facilities.
