Former Captain of the Super Eagles, Joseph Yobo, said he would work to secure bail for many inmates of the Ikoyi Prisons, especially those awaiting trial.
Yobo spoke at the inauguration of the Ikoyi Prisons Football Academy on Saturday in Lagos.
He said, “I have never been to the prisons before but on getting to Ikoyi Prisons, I realised the need to give hope to someone.
“The Joseph Yobo Foundation is ready to do everything within its means to secure bail for as many as possible that are awaiting trial, especially those in the facility’s football academy.
“I am happy with what is going on in this facility. I have never been here before but when I got here, what I saw jolted me.
“I thought I will see persons looking very sad, rushing to go out but rather, I saw them very happy, cheerful and looking very hopeful.
Yobo said that it was in this light that his foundation would seek to secure the bail for some of the inmates, train them and support them in the academy.
Nice on Joe!
