Pa Celestine Egbunuche is the oldest prisoner in Nigeria, he clocked 100 last Saturday and he decided to celebrate his birthday with his other prison mates in Enugu state. The old man has been in the prison for 17 years with his son and 78-year-old relative.

He was sentenced to life imprisonment for allegedly killing someone over a plot of land. He is from Imo-state and he’s hoping that the law would favor him someday.

According to a report, Egbunuche suffers from diabetes which has really affected him and an NGO called GSAC is appealing to the federal government to release the old man.
