Cleric IN JOS urges FG to invest in rehabilitating prisons

The Catholic Archbishop of Jos, Most Rev. Ignatius Kaigama, has urged the Federal Government to invest heavily in reforming prisoners and rehabilitating the various prison formations in the country.
Kaigama who made the call in a sermon at the Jos Prison on Tuesday added that the reformation homes had over time been neglected by the authorities.
The archbishop usually celebrates Christmas Mass with the prison inmates.
Kaigama said most of the prisons across the country are in a “sorry” state, and are in dire need of government attention.

Kaigama added that the inmates were members of the society, and should not be alienated because of their present state.
