Former Super Eagles captain, Joseph Yobo on Saturday promised to secure bail for many inmates of the Ikoyi Prisons, especially those awaiting trial through his Foundation.
Yobo made the promise at the inauguration of the Ikoyi Prisons Football in Lagos.
He said, “I have never been to the prisons before but on getting to Ikoyi Prisons, I realised the need to give hope to someone.
“The Joseph Yobo Foundation is ready to do everything within its means to secure bail for as many as possible that are awaiting trial, especially those in the facility’s football academy.
“I am happy with what is going on in this facility. I have never been here before but when I got here, what I saw jolted me.
“I thought I will see persons looking very sad, rushing to go out but rather, I saw them very happy, cheerful and looking very hopeful.”
