Oyo Correctional Service seeks support for inmates

From Stella Obi, Ibadan


Nigeria Custodian Service has appealed to organisations and well-meaning Nigerians to support the service in rehabilitating the inmates.

Assistant Controller of Corrections (ACC), Olusola Ayodele, stated this at Agodi, Ibadan, while receiving four laptops donated by two nongovernmental organisations.

Mr Ayodele, who was represented by Assistant Controller in Charge of Welfare,  Mrs Oluwatosin Otubu, while appreciating the donation, said the Custodian Centre was striving to prepare inmates for life after prison.

Presenting the donation, President, Ibadan Descendants Union, Houston, USA, Alhaja Titilayo Sanusi,  represented by a member, Mrs Yetunde Conrad said the NGO wanted to ease the learning of the inmates and enhance the work at the Agodi Correctional Automated Library.

Secretary, the Centre for Gender, Health and Social Rehabilitation, a nongovernmental organisation,  Mr Taiwo Iyanda, remarked that the life of an inmate should be more than incarceration in view of the global goals and vision of leaving no one behind in education which is a veritable tool for sustainable development.
