The Nigerian Prisons Services, would henceforth be known as Nigeria Correctional Services.

This is following the signing into law by President Muhammadu Buhari of the Nigeria Correctional Services Bill.

This was made known to journalists by the Senior Special Assistant on National Assembly Matters, Senator Ita Enang.

He said the Nigeria Correctional Service is made up of two faculties: the Custodial and Non- Custodial Service.

According to him, the non-custodial is intended for reformation allowing for community services as punishment so not every offence would attract a prison sentence.
