Free but prisoners: How children born in Kirikiri prisons live

In the cell block reserved for nursing mothers and pregnant inmates at the Kirikiri Female Prison, Lagos, toddlers clung to their mothers’ chests. They observed our correspondent, when he visited last week Saturday, with a bemused expression on their young faces.

They are in prison because their mothers are inmates. Apparently, they weren’t aware of a better life out there. They probably thought it was normal to be confined only to the four walls of the prison. No friends, no birthday parties, no relationship at all with other children outside the prison walls.

Documentary: 77% Of Nigerian Women Bleach Their Skin (Video)

It is no longer news that a lot of Nigerians are obsessed with the colour of their skin.
