JUST IN: Massive Jubilation In Northern Nigeria, As Thousands Of Prison Inmates Receive Cheerful News, A First Of Its Kind

It was jubilation galore, as the Prison Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN, a Christian body, announced the setting up of a Legal Unit, to afford inmates the opportunity to access free legal services, in Niger State, Northern Nigeria.

The PFN, also announced that the fellowship will be mobilising funds to pay fines of convicted inmates, in Niger State.

Pastor Peter Okere, the Chairman of the Niger State Chapter of PFN, made this disclosure during a News Conference on the Chapter’s Week of Prayers for Prison inmates and their families.

He said that the Legal Unit would also help in contacting family members, to perfect the bail conditions for inmates who could not perfect their bail-bonds.

“It will interest you to note that some inmates are serving prison terms for just N5,000 fine or less, which they cannot pay, or for some other flimsy grounds, while some inmates cannot secure sureties to perfect their bails.

“The Prisons, mainly in Niger State, are awash with terrible tales of inmates who have no business being in Prisons, but are there, thereby congesting our Prisons.

“This sorry state has led to increasing calls on us, as a Christian body, to channel more efforts towards looking into the cases of inmates, and do all we can to effect their release”, he said.

Okere maintained that most of the prison inmates who have benefited from PFN numerous programmes, have come out transformed, reformed, rehabilitated, and re-integrated into the society.

He disclosed that the PFN Week of Prayers 2018, titled: “Love Always Perseveres’’, would come up between July 22 and July 29.

“It will be part of the global event organised by the Prison Fellowship International.

“The week is designed as a special occasion for PFN to communicate and connect with religious bodies, and communities to focus on ministry, the families of prisoners, and victims of crime, among others.

“It will witness prayers for prisoners, former prisoners, their families, victims and prison chaplaincy, as well as raise funds and other support for Prison Fellowship and inmates.

“The week will also witness the formal investiture of Grand Patron and Patrons of PFN, and awards to deserving members of the public, who have contributed to the wellbeing of PFN”, he stated.
