APRIL, 2012 REPORTS.
Dear partner, this reports is one of our accomplishments in the first quarter of this year, we hope you will have a better understanding about what we are doing and how we are doing it.
Seven Fulani detainees gains freedom after 2years of unjust detention: One Fulani Meido Babuga complained of unjust detention to CJMR during one of our counseling periods. The complaint was forwarded to the Ministry of Justice where it was discovered that the Legal Advice absolved them of no case to answer has been dispatched since seven months ago.
We traced the original copy of the Legal Advice to the magistrate court 1 where we called the attention of the Magistrate, to the Legal Advice.
The Magistrate signed the release warrant on the spot and the inmates gained their freedom and. were received to the halfway home same day along with Gbenga Adedeji Ajayi. CJMR raised appeal for their transportation and they have been dispatched to their various destinations
|The inmates at their leisure @ the Halfway-Home||Meido and his clan @ their hamlet||Meido and his wife and his baby girl|
|Pastor Olujobi and Meido baby girl||Pastor Olujobi and Meido parents||Meido, Pastor Olujobi, Pastor Balogun and Babuga|
In pursuit of our goal of tracking down the inmate, we decided to follow up two of them who were young 18 and 19yearsold (Meido and Babuga) to their home in Igbeti and Shaki. It was a shock to see how these poor people did not know how to help their children. From the heart of the thick forest to Igbeti town was 38km.
From the main road express way we turned and drove on for 14km. There were no signs of civilization like electricity or GSM signals. There we found Meido and his people amidst of tears of joy. It was a sudden joy for the people as they have no means of GSM to communicate that we were coming. It was a sudden joy for Meido who was not aware that his wife was one-month pregnant when he was arrested.
It was a great joy when they went in and carried the baby girl to show Meido. The language barrier was broken as we went along with an interpreter, Pastor Balogun who was also a Missionary who had once lived among Fulani people in the Northern part of Nigeria. Our pains as well disappeared as we found joy on their faces.
CJMR helps get justice for the poor and break the cycle of recidivism by providing assistance for physical needs such as housing, food, education, transportation, spiritual needs of the inmate and his family and employment.
