Kirikiri Prisons Life Jail Inmate Earns Bachelor’s Degree

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 enroll . 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 enroll 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.
