Information about the Nigerian prison service
At present the Nigeria Prisons Service operate about 240 prisons which has a capacity of 50,000 in Nigeria and has about 72,000 inmates as you can see most of our prison are overcrowded and filled with filth.
Most of the crimes being committed by inmates ranges from robbery,stealing, kidnapping and assault with stealing topping the list.
It should interest you to know that only about %67 of inmates are actually awaiting trial as our judiciary system is too slow in delivery judgment. One of the biggest problems with the government is how to decongest the prison.
