The engineers, during their visit, donated beverages, food items and toiletries worth thousands of Naira to the inmates and prisons officials.

During the interaction with the inmates at the FCT Kuje prison, the oldest inmate, who preferred anonymity since they are not allowed to identify themselves, commended the engineers for making out time to see them, stating that some people see them as sinners and do not bother to show any form of concern to them.

He pointed out that most of them were in the prison because of their ignorance in a certain approach to life, but expressed confidence that they will overcome challenges they are facing and become better citizens in the society after they would have served out their time in prison.
