Nigerian Prisons’ Website Now Shutdown Amid Recruitment

The online portal of the Nigerian Prison Service has been temporarily shutdown.

The development came barely one week after the Civil Defence, Fire, Immigration and Prisons Services Board (CDFIPB) invited applications from suitably qualified candidates for full time appointments to fill existing vacancies into the service.

Candidate were asked to log into the website fill and submit the application form online. Applicants were also advised to print out the Referee forms which must be duly completed for submission during screening.

All applications are expected to be completed and submitted within six (6) weeks.

However, a check on the official website of the service on Sunday showed that the portal was unavailable.

The site had a short message on its homepage that reads, “WE WILL BE BACK SHORTLY.”

Meanwhile, a quick tech check on the site by this reporter shows that the site was created on December 25, 2008 by National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) and was last updated in August 2014.

When DAILY POST reached out to the Registrant, Agi Edegi, he did not respond to our calls.

Meanwhile, the board is yet to explain the reason behind the unavailability of the portal.
