He told the inmates to look beyond their present situation.

“Being free is a thing of the mind and not necessarily means being out of prison,” he said.

The students also gave dental health talks to the inmates, urging them to maintain high oral and environmental hygiene.

The prison's Director of Welfare Service, J. I Osemwengie, thanked the students for the visit.
