It has been revealed that wealthy Nigerians been incarcerated in prisons within the country are treated a little different from other prisoners. They are put in special cells, without a power generating set for power supply, they allowed to sleep with women for a fee and even have domestic help while in prison.

As Nigerians await the outcome of the investigation panel inaugurated to look into what led to the recent riot in Kirikiri Medium Security prison, more facts have continued to emerge on what really transpired in the incident which claimed at least three lives and more than 15 others injured.

Coming to limelight are fresh claims by inmates and ex-inmates that there are privileged or super prisoners in Nigerian prisons, thus confirming the popular quote in George Orwell’s Animal Farm that all animals are equal but some are more equal than the others. The Prison authorities, however, deny this insisting that no such thing happens in their custody.

Investigations revealed that the prison riot was caused by a move by the newly posted Deputy Comptroller of Immigration, Kayode Odeyemi to strip some privileged prisoners of their privileges. Some inmates also accused the prison warders of diverting gifts meant for them for their personal use, adding that most of the materials seized from them by the DCP were in turn sold to them secretly by the same officials. They insisted that preference was always given to some inmates who are referred to as super or privileged prisoners.

In a bid to authenticate claims by the inmates, Saturday Sun spoke to some ex-inmates most of whom were re-arrested by the police while allegedly committing another crime. One of such is Obinna Enyinnaya who spent two years and eight months in Kirikiri Medium prison. Obinna was recently rearrested by operatives of the Special Anti Robbery Squad, Lagos police command two months after he was released from prison. He was picked up alongside seven others after raiding a house in Lagos. He insists that there are cells known as privileged cells.
