Some Nigerians have condemned the continued stay of a 100-year-old man, Pa Celestine Egbunuche, inside the Enugu Maximum Prison.

The centenarian dubbed Nigeria’s oldest prisoner celebrated his 100th year birthday on August 4, 2018.

Some Nigerians on Twitter opined that Pa Egbunuche should be set free because of his age and health. Some also called on the State government and the Presidency to intervene and facilitate his release.
