    I wonder when Nigerians will stop referring to hearing impaired people as Dumb. Even though they are deaf, they are not dumb. They still have the mental capabilities to think. Please let’s respect people that are physically challenged

    But how can they keep a 10-year juvenile with older kids? They are all children and this should not happen. The prison system must be held accountable for this.
