Abia attorney-general donates mattresses as IPOB members overcrowd prison
Umeh Kalu, attorney-general of Abia state, has donated a hundred mattresses because of the increase prison inmates owing to the arrest of suspected members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

Several people arrested were arrested during Operation Python Dance II that was launched in the south-east by the Nigerian army.
Kalu said he was aware that the prisons have been overstretched with the arrest of IPOB members.
He said the detainees deserved a comfortable place to lay their heads.
“They deserve a comfortable place to lay their heads,” he said.
“It all in our interest to reform the prisons so that when they come out they won’t come out with bitterness against the society.”

The attorney-general said he had been interfacing with the prisons and was quite aware of the challenges they were facing.
Ayoka, comptroller of prisons, praised Kalu for his assistance to the prisons and urged other public spirited individual and groups to emulate his gesture.
“We always go out of our way to plead for assistance in order to create conducive environment for the prisons to play their reformatory roles,” he said.
“[Kalu has succeeded in] in suppressing tensions in the prisons usually generated by discomforts, adding that the items would be distributed to the prisons in Umuahia, Aba and Arochukwu.”
