The NBM has donated $1000 worth of noodles to inmates at Warri Custodian Centre (formerly known as Okere Prison) in Delta State. A move that an official at the prison described as “an expression of love to the inmates on Valentine’s day”.
The NBM described it as “a way to identify with inmates”
I’d describe it as a way for the NBM to deliver noodles and bog roll to members in the State arrested and waiting trial for murder, armed robbery, kidnapping etc etc whilst getting their picture in the paper in the process.
