Nigeria’s Oldest Prisoner Finally Regains Freedom

 

It’s freedom at last After 19 years in the Enugu Maximum Prison, for Nigeria’s oldest prisoner, Pa Celestine Egbohuche.

The centenarian from Amachara-Owerre, Imo State, had been sentenced to death after a court found him and his son, Paul, now 88, guilty of plotting murder.

However, just before leaving office, former Imo State governor, Rochas Okorocha, granted him state pardon, following pleas from an NGO, Global Society for Anti-corruption (GSAC).

Egbohuche was released on Thursday and immediately taken to St. Daniel’s Hospital in Enugu, for thorough medical attention
