Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, minister of interior , says the federal government is considering relocating Ikoyi Correctional Centre and other facilities across the country.

The minister said this on Monday when he visited the Ikoyi prison in Lagos.

Tunji-Ojo said urbanisation has caught up with the prison, noting that “there is no reason for this facility to still be here”.

He said there was no proper “buffer zone” as specified in the constitution and called Ikoyi prison a “Security Threat.”
