The prison passage is rarely a place where someone wants to be. But for Lagos police public relations officer, Dolapo Badmos, that is just the right place to celebrate an added year.
Badmos who has made quite a name for herself cemented her patriotic spirit when she spent her birthday at the Kirikiri prison in Lagos. She made the visit after gracing a Thanksgiving ceremony at Testimonial Place.
The Lagos Zone 2 police public relations officer had a memorable time with the prison inmates who all wore polo shirts that clearly revealed a celebratory tone.
It was gathered that the highly influential woman who is presently over forty applauded the female prison inmates for the strength they are showing even while in the prison. It meant a lot that they could still derive joy in themselves despite their incarceration.
In a speech to the inmates, she expressed her happiness to the women and encouraged them with the assurance that the prison home was not their final abode.
She said: “I am very happy standing in front of you all to celebrate my birthday, I was a bit surprised and disappointed today because I thought here I would meet people who are depressed and not looking happy, but the reverse is the case and I am happy. Prison is not your permanent home. Always have the belief that you would get your freedom one day.”
