Recent pictures of a mother and her baby serving a prison sentence in Nigeria has left many people dumbfounded about the state of our prison system and the welfare of the prisoners.
Evangelist Christian Chukwuka, the founder of Abounding Grace Foundation has shared heartbreaking photos of a one-month-old baby and her mother who are currently held behind bars at a Nigerian prison.
Chukwuka shared the photos on his social media page after paying a visit to some women in a prison in the eastern part of the country.
The baby identified as Onyedika was reportedly thrown in jail along with the mother after her sentencing for a crime which wasn’t revealed.
In the post, the evangelist said, “are babies supposed to serve prison sentence with their mother or be kept in motherless babies’ home or with their relatives outside until mother is released”.
The evangelist also revealed that there are over fifty babies who are under silent pain with their mothers in prison.
