The National Spokesperson of the Nigeria Correctional Service, Francis Enobore, has confirmed the emergence of Chidinma Ojukwu, the alleged killer of Super TV boss, Michael Ataga as Miss Cell 2022 in Kirikiri Correctional Centre.
Naija News had earlier reported that Ojukwu emerged as the winner of the competition after competing alongside other ladies at the correctional facility.
Enobore further stated that part of the services of the correctional facility is to ensure that inmates are in sound and good spirits.
The spokesman of NCS revealed this in an interview with DailyTrust on Thursday.
He said, “What happened is that as part of our reformation and rehabilitation programme and to also keep the inmates in a sound and good spirit, we organise a number of social engagement amongst them. Some could be recreational activities, some could be theatre work like entertainment.
“There are a number of programs that we introduced to get the inmates happy and put them in a good frame of mind. First, we ensure that while they are there, they are open to correction, second, we ensure that they are there in good spirit in order to help them kill boredom.
“There are so many things we do. In line with this, the officer in charge of the Kirikiri correctional facility organized some competitions among the inmates like cooking, tailoring, make-up, among others.
“These are things that will make them happy because our primary responsibility is to keep them safe and sound. That was what happened and she emerged the best in the competition. It is part of what we do. In fact, the person in charge of the Kirikiri female prison has been doing marvellously well.”
