About 100 Nigerians arrested during the 2020 nationwide End SARS demonstration against police brutality are languishing in prison.
They are currently in the custody of the Nigerian Correctional Service (NCoS), precisely Suleja Custodial Centre.
Three things are unclear: if they were arrested from Abuja or other states; if they were armed or violent as at the time of arrest; if they have been secretly tried in court.
A source who visited the facility recently told DAILY POST that some of the detainees have not spoken to their family.
The citizen, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, also complained that the prison is overpopulated by 150 per cent.
“Please get the word out, the place is jam-packed. The capacity is 250 but inmates there are around 630,” he said.
