About 500 Christian inmates in Kaduna prison were on Friday fed by a group of Muslim women on Friday in order to celebrate Christmas and to promote unity and togetherness among Nigerians.
The leader of the women group, Hajiya Maryam Abubakar, while speaking to journalists in Kaduna said that the gesture was to show love to Christians who were incarcerated.
Abubakar said, “I want the inmates to have a good taste of food with beef different from what they are offered inside the prison.
“I want my Christian brothers and sisters in prison to know that today is Christmas; we only cooked for 500 inmates and I hope it will go round.”
She appealed to Muslims and Christians to learn to live in peace. The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that apart from the cooked food, the women also gave the inmates beverages, toiletries, among others.
