“Addressing the gathering of inmates, staff and guests, the Controller of Prisons, CP Osayande O. Amadin who was represented by ACP Bridget Iyamu encouraged the inmates to maximise their time in the prison by fully participating in the Reform and rehabilitation programmes such as the football tournament in order to be empowered and successfully reintegrated back to the society on their eventual release.
