Man Who Has Been Sentenced To Life Imprisonment Gets Bachelor’s Degree From Prison

A middle aged man, Tuwanse Kabiru serving life sentence in kirikiri, on Saturday graduated with 4,308 students at the 3rd convocation of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), in Lagos. Kabiru was sentenced to life imprisonment after he was found guilty of murder. The prisoner who came in company of the prison officials was awarded a Bachelors degree (BA) in Human Resource Management.

“I want to thank God for what he is doing in my life. I have always had hope in God and that is what inspired me to enrol. I was actually imprisoned after being found guilty of committing murder and I have served 11 years so far. I am still hopeful that things will turnaround one day for the better having achieved what I have today,” he said.

The Assistant Controller-General Nigeria Prisons, Chuks Afejue, hailed the courage displayed by the graduating inmate, saying he was the first to enrol and kick start academic activities at the prisons study centre.

According to him, this will prove to people that the prison is not just a dumping ground for those who seem not to have any more hope.

“The prison is a place where reforms and rehabilitation take place. Currently, we have a total of 48 inmates who are enrolled in all the four major prisons study centres across the country.

“It is an exciting exercise and we want to seize this opportunity to plead with the Federal government to try and temper justice with mercy, having achieved this feat. He pleaded on behalf of Tuwanse. What do you think?

  7. B-R-E-A-K-I-N-G News!!!
    British Health Authority Queries Senator Abe's Entry Health Certificate.

    **"There was no trace of injury on him neither was there any treatment given to him apart from Antipyretic, an unknown drug".
    **"he is in a ward where people with shock are kept, not even emergency ward or wards for people that have bullet wounds".

    The British Health Authorities have expressed their anger with Nigeria Medical Team and officers that examined and signed the result and the Health certificate that enabled Senator Magnus Abe to be flown into the United Kingdom.
    One of the Health Team member, who saw Senator Abe in the London Bridge Hospital, queried, "what kind of medical practitioners do they have in Nigeria to have issued a health certificate to a man that was not sick or injured?"

    According to the British Health Autority Team, "there was no trace of injury on him neither was there any treatment given to him apart from a drug called antipyretic (whatever it means).
    "The lawmaker is in a ward where people with shock are kept, not even emergency ward or wards for people that have bullet wounds, whether live or rubber".
    They wonder why a fake medical result was issued to Senator Abe in other to be allowed into the United Kingdom.

    Senator Abe was admitted to the London bridge Hospital in the City of London, under a fake name after an inducement fee of £50,000 was claimed to be be paid.
    Reliable source to Hope For Nigeria, in the Hospital, stated that Abe may be leaving the London Bridge Hospital this weekend to an undisclosed location.

    2. Antipyretic is a medication for fever e.g tylenol or paracetamol (for naija).
