The donation was made by Nero Asibelua Foundation (NAF) to support the effective rehabilitation of the inmates. According to the chairman of the foundation, Mr. Nero Asibelua, who was represented by the chairperson, Mrs. Vivian Asibelua, there was need to rehabilitate people in the prisons so they can come out as better Nigerians.
“I am moved by the initiative of the authorities at Kirikiri Maximum Security Prison for setting up such a laudable programme. Our foundation is supporting on-going reformatory structure already in place in making a difference in the lives of inmates and, ultimately when released and they become free, they will be useful to themselves and the larger society,” she said, while appealing to the teeming populace to engage in humanitarian services.
The NAF team was received and conducted round the facility by the officers in charge, DCP Seye Oduntan, ACP Henry Onyeze, the CSP and other ranking officers.
