Ogun prison inmates
Anon-governmental organisation, Habiba Foundation, has donated seven sewing machines and a tailoring centre to the inmates of the Oba Correctional Centre in Abeokuta, Ogun State.
The foundation also donated a borehole and an ultra-modern mosque to the juvenile detention centre, Borstal Institution in Adigbe, Abeokuta.
While handing over the tailoring centre and sewing machines to the correctional home, the founder of Habiba Foundation, Rasheed Sunmola, said the gesture was to support the efforts of the government.
He explained that it became imperative to provide a means of livelihood for inmates so that they would not become a threat to the country after leaving the correctional facility.
Sunmola added that the foundation was concerned about the rehabilitation of the inmates after serving out their terms.
He said, “This was done so that we can give our brothers (inmates) here something they would be doing after they leave this place and they will not become a nuisance to society.”
