By Agbo Sunday, Abakaliki

There was pandemonium in Abakaliki, the Ebonyi State capital yesterday as prison inmates protested against the prisons authorities.
When our correspondent visited the prisons, the routes both entry and exit was cordoned off to prevent possible jail break.
In an interview with the Controller of the Abakaliki Prisons,Emillian Adaobi told newsmen that the prisons inmate were protesting against the Deputy Controller of Prisons in the state.
Mrs. Adaobi, who added that the the inmates were also agitating for the appointment of provost to them also admitted that the prison was congested.
“I call it agitation. I was in the office when I was called that the
inmates are agitating; asking for this, asking for that and I rushed there and asked them to select two representatives from each cell let me hear from them because we have a way we operate.
“After listening, I discovered some of the things they are agitating for. They are agitating for Indian hemp to allowed inside their cells and we have stopped that. Secondly, they are asking to be opened out to the prison yard because you know they are many; 950 inmates and we have rules and regulations which I have told them.
“We cannot open them the way they want. They want to choose their provost the way they want. I told them I will come and conduct election for a provost.
” They are complaining of irrelevant things, they said they don’t want to see some staff. They even said
they don’t want to see the Deputy Comptroller of Prison(DCP) and I told them I cannot appoint a DCP. The agitation is normal because the congestion is much.
“It is natural to cordon off when there is problem, you segregate, you aggregate. But I have asked them to open the roads to the prisons which were cordoned off. Sometimes, the prisons starts agitations when they know something(Indian hemp) is coming for them from outsiders who usually throw in Indian hemp into the fence. So, in this
case you have to cordon off everywhere. Most of these agitators are awaiting trials”
