BBNaija’s Neo donates relief items to inmates in Warri prison

Big Brother Naija star, Neo Akpofure popularly known as Neo Energy, has visited the Nigeria Correctional Service in his hometown of Warri, Delta state.

The former ‘All Stars’ contestant who spent much of his childhood in prisons with his warden mother, provided some relief items to cater to the welfare of the inmates.

Neo took to his Twitter account to share photos from his recent visit which showed him and some prison officials posing in front of boxes containing supplies.

The 29-year-old said he had love for helping inmates get back on their feet and the reason he established the Amakazat Foundation was to ensure that they are treated humanely.

He wrote; “Couldn’t have Visted my Warri without visiting the Nigerian Correctional service again. Growing up and living inside the prisons because my mum was a warden, I developed a soft spot for some of these prisoners, especially after listening to some of their stories of how life dealt them a bad hand. This is one of the projects I’m intentional and passionate about.

One of the core missions of @amakazat_foundation founded by yours truly is to ensure that there is hope even behind bars, that prisons and penitentiaries in Nigeria continue to serve the purpose of being correctional facilities and in a bid to achieve that we have decided to make sure that these prisoners live under humane conditions whilst being confined until they’re reintegrated back into society.”

Neo added; “For those asking, I entered and shared it myself to the prisoners. It’s not allowed to record inside.”
