Prison officer impregnates prisoner’s wife, marries & pays bride price to her husband

A prison warden has reportedly impregnated and married the wife of an inmate who is awaiting trial at the facility on charges of armed robbery and possession of illegal firearms.

After tying the knot with the woman, the Nigerian officer in Charge of the Suleja Custodial Centre, AbdulRahman Musa, an Assistant Controller of Corrections returned to pay money to the inmate and asked him to forget about his wife.

Reports say the Comptroller-General of the Nigerian Correctional Service (NCoS), Haliru Nababa has initiated a high-level disciplinary procedure into the development.

According to, the inmate’s wife had been visiting him regularly at the facility but later told her relatives that she wanted to file for a divorce because she was fed up with her husband remaining behind bars and the trouble of visiting him every time.

“Having gotten her pregnant, he then proceeded to tie the knots with her without even his own Personal Assistant knowing. He did everything in secret to the point that not a single personnel knew about it”, a source is quoted as saying.

Musa later resumed work after a break to marry the inmate’s wife and then gave him N10, 000 (GHS144) and then asked him to close his mind on his wife who the officer described as “a useless woman”.

The officer tried to calm tempers among inmates who were angry in solidarity with their fellow whose wife has been snatched, but they reportedly bathed him with faeces and urine.

The prison warden has been reportedly redeployed to Kano state with immediate effect following the initiation of the probe into his conduct.
