On Saturday, 4th August, 2018, CSP Dolapo Badmos proved to the world that her love for humanity is unquantifiable as she took her birthday celebration to Kirikiri medium prison in Apapa, after the thanksgiving service held at Testimony Place.
At their church, warders and the prisoners gave the birthday girl an impressive reception. The Pastor, Kabiru welcomed CSP Badmos and her entourage. He introduced her to the inmates and the CSP also spoke to inmates, “ 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.” She further advised them to behave themselves as that is their ticket to freedom and to always follow the prison’s rules and regulations so that some might be lucky to get immunity from the state or federal government if their record merited it. CSP Dolapo urged them that when they eventually get their freedom, they should not go back to the acts that brought them to prison. She told them to live a good live because there is always hope for them outside the prison.
After the brief exhortation one of the inmates, who is the pastor of the inmates fellowship, showed appreciation on behalf of the inmates to CSP Dolapo Badmos for taking her time to visit them. He begged the celebrator to help them step into the issue of some inmates, who have spent over 5 to 10years in the prison awaiting trial.
There was a session of cutting cake by the celebrator surrounded by inmates and her entourage. She also danced with them before the ceremony was brought to a close.
