Normalcy returns to Kano prison after inmates riot

The Nigeria Correctional Service (NCoS) says normalcy has been restored to the Kurmawa Custodial facility in Kano metropolis following a violent protest staged by the inmates on Thursday.

The Public Relations Officer, NCoS Kano State Command, DSC Musbahu Kofar-Nasarawa, confirmed the development to newsmen on Friday in Kano.

It was gathered that the inmates rioted over alleged poor quality food in the facility, a situation which caused panic among residents of a possible jailbreak by the inmates.
