As shared by Thomas.....

'This is Haruna from Zaria, an orphan.

He is just 14, my first daughters age, remanded in keffi prison for 21days for stealing a grinding machine worth 12000naira.

He lives in Mpape with his cousin who also carries dirt (mebola)

He was brought to Mpape court today while I went there to get a release document for a young man kept in prison, then I saw him in handcuffs brought to court in a prison van for final judgement.

The age got my attention.

If his parents were alive, maybe, just maybe he won't have been on the streets at 14 scouting for a living.

I got him freed.

I asked him if he wants to go to school and he said no. He wants to be a mechanic. Well, that is his choice. I will send a staff to get him registered tomorrow.

He was going to serve a jail term for stealing grinding  machine, how come our courts are quick to sentence poor people?

With all the billions stolen everyday?'
