The UK is to pay for a new wing in one of Nigeria's largest prisons in a bid to expedite the transfer of Nigerian prisoners from Britain.

With this arrangement, eligible prisoners serving criminal sentences in Nigeria and Britain can be transferred back to their respective countries to complete their prison terms.

The British prison system has been showing signs of severe strain in recent years, with overcrowding, rising suicide rates and a growing problem with drug trafficking and other crimes within jails that were sometimes built in the Victorian era.

The UK has made previous deals with some countries to transfer prisoners in UK jails to their countries of origin.

Britain announced a £25m deal to build a prison in Jamaica in 2015, but it "fell through following a dispute over funding", says The Independent.

Demi is also close with Iggy Azalea , and said of her Australian rapper friend, "She's super low-key; she doesn't drink or party". There are certain pop stars who don't speak out politically, and they have more fans.

"The government believes that wherever possible foreign nationals should serve their sentences in their own country", a foreign office spokesperson said.

To keep its prisons free of Nigerians, the United Kingdom is paying to improve the capacity of Nigerian prisons. This accounts for 3 percent of the foreign prisoner population. Kiri Kiri prison has a controversial history.

According to tenders placed with construction firms, the project will cost £695,525.

In a statement written to Parliament, Johnson said, "The provision of this assistance is in line with the government's security and stability objectives in West Africa".

According to him, the project will be funded from Britain's Conflict, Stability and Security Fund, which is said to have an annual budget of more than 1Billion Pounds, with the sole aim of commissioning projects geared towards preventing and curbing conflicts and ensuring stability in different countries.
