April 5, 2013 – Lagos State DCP Laticia Isioma Owuli Starves Inmates: How Female Prisoners Slump Daily Due To Hunger – Insider
I got an information from some of the inmates that they are being starved by the above named woman incharge. I was told that inmates slumps almost everyday, there was one that happend on sat 30th march 20013, some of the inmates died because of hunger.
The women and babies are falling sick due to inadequate feeding, i was also told that the inmates are eating rotten food because of hunger.
I also learnt that the controller of lagos prison and the woman in-charge of female prison are dating and because of that the controller does not do his duty. it was said that the controller use to be a father to them when they have issue with the former incharger, that the controller will settle the matter and he makes sure all is well before he leaves. but now, the inmates doesn’t understand why the controller changes over night and takes sides with the new woman in charge especially when she is wrong and treat the inmates like animals.
There was a time the inmates called her attention to dialogue with her, just like a mother. instead what she did was to tell the controller that the inmates want to riot in the prison yard, so because of her lies the police and soldier were called to guard the prison yard. sometimes the inmates are warned to pretend that everything is fine when the NGOS are around and after they leave they begin to starve them again.
When food and provisions are being brought for them by families are friends, the warders will collect some of the items from them or they would let then to collect all the food or provision brought for the from the families and friends, unlike the male prison, they allow them to collect every food and provision brought to them by their family and friends.
Please these inmates need your help before they all starve to death, especially the mothers and babies. If you want to find out about what am saying speak to the inmates and not to the controller, warder or the woman incharge.
Please helps us talk to the government to come to their aide before people start dying like chicken.
I will appreciate it if my identity is kept unknown because i don’t want trouble.
Thanks and God bless u and your families as you come to their aide.
