B Lord to sponsor education of 19-yr-old girl unlawfully detained in prison for months
Executive Chairman and Founder of B-Lord Group, Linus Williams Ifejika popularly known as B Lord, has pledged to train a 19-year-old girl, Kosisochukwu Obaji, to the university as she regains her freedom after being unlawfully arrested.
It was gathered that Kosisochukwu was arrested in January 2023 over a undisclosed matter and she’s been in detention for three months.
Activist and lawmaker-elect, Harrison Gwamnishu recently secured her release from the Onitsha Custodial Centre in Anambra state.
BLord, on finding out about hearing her unfortunate situation, pledged to sponsor the 19 years old girl to University.
He said he will include Kosi in a newly launched scholarship scheme and sponsor her to the Nnamdi Azikiwe University, (UNIZIK), Akwa, no matter her course of choice.
The businessman made this known through his official Instagram page and shared a video which captures when the teenage girl was released from prison.
He wrote; “I Heard She was Just released from prison , A 19 Year Old In Prison ??? She said she wanna go back to school, That made me smile , @blordgroup has decided to add her to our scholarship scheme to study in Nnamdi Azikwe University Awka.
