PLEASE JAIL MY SON-woman begs court
Mrs Helen Chukwu has asked an Abule Egba magistrate court to jail her son Ifeanyi Chukwu so that he can be reformed. Ifeanyi Chukwu who according to the prosecutor Insp. Rachael Williams; always beat his mother whenever he was drunk or whenever she rebuked him for coming home late. And that Ifeanyi even threatened to kill his mother and sisters. The prosecutor also said that on June 15, a fight ensured between them and after beating his mother, the accused damaged four windows and a wooden door valued at #25,000.
The offences contravened section 56, 170 and 349 of the criminal law of Lagos state 2011, the prosecutor said. But that’s not all oooo….. The mother had this to say:
“I want him to go to Kirikiri prison to learn a lesson so that when he returns, he would have been reformed”. However, the accused pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Can a Nigerian prison reform someone?
