Philanthropist donates food items to Zaria Custodial Centre

 Dr Maryam Abdullahi, Jagaban Matan Zazzau, has donated food items to the Zaria Custodial Centre and also paid N509,000 to release 10 inmates.

Abdullahi, who made the donation in Zaria on Friday, also gave the released convicts N10,000 each to start businesses when they return to their respective houses.

Items donated are bags of rice, 25 cartons of spaghetti and 25 bags of Semovita.

She noted that the donation is part of her humanitarian programmes which had also been done in the Federal Capital Territory.

She, therefore, urged the beneficiaries to use the gesture to be good citizens and improve their lives.

In his remarks, Mr Ibrahim Rambo, an Assistant Controller of Corrections and Officer-in-charge of Medium Security Custodial Centre, Zaria, commended Jagaban for the donation.

He said that the donations and the release were unprecedented.

Rambo urged other well-to-do individuals to emulate Jagaban to enable the government to strengthen the reformation processes at the centre.
