These 3,000 capacity custodial centres are located in Kano, Rivers and Abuja.
Aregbesola, disclosed this to journalists after a facility tour to the 3,000 ultra modern Capacity Custodial Centre Karshi, Abuja.
He said the one in Kano was almost completed while the facilities in Rivers and Abuja were at 55% of completion.
“My desire is to have the first three of the six projects to be completed before this administration ends.
“We have a similar facility in Kano that is almost completed. I believe before December, it will be inaugurated and commissioned by the President. The one at River State is almost at the same stage like this. With support from the President, these two (Rivers and Abuja) will be completed by the end of the year,” he said.
