According to Oluwaseyi Davies the passes made by criminals on death row is affecting him psychologically.
While narrating his ordeal to Justice Sybil Nwaka of the Lagos Sexual Offences and Domestic Violence Court, Ikeja, he summarized his life “in danger”.
“My Lord, my life is in danger as I am not safe. My family members are not even aware I am in Kirikiri Prisons. I am daily threatened by the condemned inmates who have persistently desired to ram into my anus.”
According to him, officials of the prisons of whisked him and four other inmates away from Ikoyi Prisons, where they were initially remanded to Kirikiri Medium Prison without any notice or information to their lawyers or families. He further lamented that the Ikoyi prison authorities secretly swapped him with some inmates, who were listed to be transferred from Ikoyi to Kirikiri Prison, dragged him into a bus and straight into a cell, which is solely meant for condemned inmates know as “Angola”.
“I was conducting prayers with other inmates in my cell on Saturday, when one of the prison officials came, holding a list in his hand, and handpicked me out of the rest. The official also went to another cell and picked out four other inmates. “I asked him why he picked me out and he replied that the five of us have been selected for transfer to Kirikiri Prison. I was shocked and asked for the reason behind the transfer. He didn’t respond. The list had nine names but my name wasn’t included. The other inmates whose names were included began shouting at him, asking him why he would pick the five of us and exclude the actual people on the list.
“I have not slept since Saturday. The inmates I met in the cell had threatened to deal with me if I did not open my ‘yansh’ for them to explore. My life is in danger as I am not safe,” Davies said.
