Inhumanities Existing In Nigerian Prisons – Sir Wole


Stories of the inhumane treatment of prisoners in Nigerian prisons have continued to stir conversations on social media.

When we thought reformation of the prison service had come with the recent visit of the newly appointed Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola to the Nigerian Prison, it seems the terrible living conditions still remain the same.

Here is a touching experience of a social media personnel Sir Wole an ex-convict.

It reads:

“I don’t like to remember or talk about my prison experience, the reason why I have been mute about it all through. The life there is sickening! It is an experience that can drain you for life. I’m not talking about prison in general, I’m talking about the the NIGERIAN PRISON.”

“Nigeria  is ruined tbh. And I don’t think we would ever get out of this terrible state till death. I am not being negative, I’m a very optimistic person but I have seen it all trust me.”

“To  start with, I think Nigeria is the only country where you are accused for something and without proof or evidence to show, you can be in jail for the rest of your life. If you know you don’t have families to fight for you, please don’t be at the wrong place at the wrong time.”

“Do  you know there are teenagers in the Nigerian prison??? Small boys barely 18 are there for Crimes they did not commit or know absolutely nothing about????”

“While  I was there, there was this boy they always call chin- chin in my cell. I kept wondering why they always called him that and asked him one day – Guy come here, why do they call you chin-chin all the time? guess his reply? “i was hungry and I stole chin chin” that was what brought him to prison. He looked gentle. I was 100% sure the boy is barely 20 years old. My heart was filled with tears but I could not cry so he doesn’t feel too bad. I asked again, are you sure that is what brough you here? He said “nothing else bro” and I was shocked!”

“I  guess he does not have people to fight for him, or probably his parents/family are tired of trying. If you know what it cost to get out of prison, you will be shocked! Everything I’m saying to you right now is real. No jokes”

“There  was another young guy, I was particular about these young boys cos I kept wondering what they would have done to be in prison. If you see guys 30-40 years old in there, true or not you will lowkey feel they committed the crime. But not these young boys.”

“There  was this boy, he works for his oga, the oga just came one day and accused him of stealing 200k from his shop. The boy said he barely stayed 3 days in a police cell before he was brought to prison. A boy barely 20 years old! ”

“No  proper investigation, nothing was done! I thought Prison was for people with serious cases. people who have been convicted for crimes committed with “evidence” or they were caught in the act??? When did it turn a place for keeping suspects like small boys????”

“You  know what made this particular case worse? It is the fact that the parent/ family of the boy wanted to settle out of court. Saying sir, please give us 2 months, we would pay so and so monthly to cover up but the OGA did not agree. It was hurting!!!”

“The  boy, I had to ask him again, Just gist me guy, did you move this money? He was like “bros, we are here together. There is absolutely nothing to be corny about, I did not steal his money.” Argh! I lost hope in Nigeria! This time a tear dropped!”

“After  a week of pleading & loaning money here & there, his family was able to sort the OGA and the boy was released on bail. Is that how Nigeria works guys?? U mean someone can randomly accuse you for something and before you know it, u are fucking in jail! With nothing to show??”

“I’ll  talk about one more guy.m, David. He said he lives around ajah. On his way home after work, his usual routine of getting home 11-12 pm. He was stopped by the police and their usual “raiding” they do. Packed with other boys and he has spent 7 months in prison!”

“If  you know what it means to spend a day in the NIGERIAN PRISON you will be shocked! How do you just packed boys in the street, take them to your cell and from there court and next thing jail straight up! Don’t you have conscience??”

“Before  I left, the boys family was still trying to settle bail terms. It has been hard for them. They have spent heaven and earth to get him out to no avail. I hope the guy is out by now.”

“It  is not just about the young boys alone. There are many other mad duck ups about the NIGERIAN PRISON. Is it the terrible food they serve, or how they place inmates like sardines to sleep on top each other???”
