The President of the Nigerian women in clergy, Nonnie Roberson has condemned the incarceration of an 8 month-old-baby and other children in prison.
Roberson, who is overseer of the New Wine Ministries who visited the prison yesterday in Suleja, Niger State noted that the children were held because their mothers were servicing jail terms.
She also used the opportunity of her visit to pay for the release of about eight prisioners said: “I was really shocked when I saw the baby. The woman lives on garri that outsiders provide for them. They don’t give them food. They depend on what people take to them. That is what they share among them and they soak the gari even in the morning with little or no sugar. You can just imagine! There are many children living in this condition in Nigerian prisons but people would not know. I weep for this country.”
She said paid fines for prisoners who were randomly selected when she visited the Suleja prison.
