An inmate in Nigerian prisons is fed on a paltry N3.50k per day, the Legal Defence and Assistance Project, LEDAP, has said.
Speaking at a round table for media and civil society organizations in Lagos, Thursday, National Coordinator of the group, Chino Obiagwu, said that the figure used to be lower at N2.10k per prisoner until the present Comptroller-General of Prisons increased it.

The round table was themed ‘Moving Nigeria Towards the Abolition of the Death Penalty’.
“The truth is that many prisoners supplement their meals because all kinds of businesses and activities go on inside the prisons,” said Mr. Obiagwu. “If you allow Nigerian prisoners to survive on their ration, they will all die”.

The LEDAP coordinator revealed that there are about 56,000 inmates scattered across Nigerian prisons.
“A lot of philanthropy goes into our prisons, churches like the Catholic Church, The Redeemed church carry out on regular prison visits to improve the welfare of inmates”, he said.
LEDAP champions the rights of Nigerian prisoners.

That's if the donations ever reach the inmates. Oga will pack his portion, the workers too. Very painful. My sympathy goes out to the innocent inmates.
