The contest generated mixed reactions across the country with some people arguing that the pageant was inappropriate for a suspect facing a murder trial while others argued that the prison authority reserved the right to conduct the pageant of all inmates.

Although the prison authorities defended the action.

News men exclusively gathered that the comptroller of the female prisons, Mrs Ekpendu, was redeployed last week as a result of the matter.

A source, who did not want his name mentioned because he was not officially permitted to speak on the matter, explained that Mrs Ekpendu was redeployed to the Lagos Command Headquarters, Alagbon, Ikoyi.
