A freed lover, Miss Precious Obinna, who was imprisoned for an alleged murder of a baby during an immoral visit to her boyfriend at Abbi in Ndokwa West local Government Area of Delta State says she has learnt her lessons.
Stonix News reports that Obinna, against all admonitions from her mother, had gone to Abbi to enjoy with her boyfriend all the way from Orlu in Imo State, when she landed into trouble.
She was accused of the murder of the little boy around the residence of her boyfriend during her visit at Abbi in Ndokwa West local Government Area of the state.
Thereafter, operatives of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the Delta State Police Command arrested her and was slammed into the Kwale Custodial Centre.
Obinna, however, said the child had been dead a day before she arrived her boyfriend’s abode, adding that she was wrongly accused and remanded in the prison since March 22, 2023 after she was arrested by the State CID.
Speaking to journalists on Wednesday after she breathed the air of freedom courtesy of the clemency of the Delta State Chief Judge, Honourable Justice Theresa Dai, the Igbo girl called on youths to always listen and obey their parents.
In her unsolicited homily, she also advised youths like her to abstain from immoral lifestyles, saying she had learnt her lessons by going into a relationship with the boy she wasn’t married to against the advice of her mother.
Meanwhile, three other inmates had been set free alongside Obinna and four granted bail by the Delta State Chief Judge, Justice Dai, from the Kwale Custodial Centre.
Speaking during the Second Quarter Prison visit to Kwale Custodial Centre, Justice Dai said that a total of 293 warrants were reviewed.
She explained that in the next legal year, cases would be filed in their original jurisdiction with a view to referring to the old system.
Justice Dai, however, commended the stakeholders, including the Deputy Controller of Prison in the custodial centre, the security agents, Nigerian Bar Association and the judges as well as the zonal officers for their commitment to duty.
She hinted that she would give award to the judges in the centre for their outstanding performance and assured that every hard work would be rewarded.
