Many of them were excited and curious to know what led to his detention.
According to a source, the inmates were amazed to see Moro in prison custody barely one year after he visited the facility as the interior minister.
Justice Anwuli Chikere of the Federal High Court, Abuja on Monday remanded the former minister in prison custody over his alleged complicity in a N676million job scam.
A source said the former minister was brought to the prison around 12 pm on Monday and made to undergo the standard procedures for inmates.
