Davido’s father Adedeji Adeleke has secured the release of two hundred prisoners in Osun state after he paid their fines. According to the vice chairman of the Springtime Development Foundation owned by Adedeji Adeleke, the foundation also provided seven hundred mattresses and pillows for inmates at the prison in Ilesha. Vice Chairman Banji Adesuyi who was at the prison on Tuesday, July 18, noted that the foundation decided to help the inmates after Adeleke visited the prison.
Adesuyi expressed that Adeleke became aware of the state of the prison when he found out that some inmates were made to sleep on bare floor during his visit with All Progressives Congress chieftain, Djekola Oyedele, who was detained.
The foundation also paid fines of inmates who were unable to pay fines as low as N5,000. One of the inmates, Ekene Madunagwu, expressed appreciation to the Adeleke foundation, saying that he had not seen anybody demonstrate the kind of gesture shown by the businessman. Adesuyi further added that the foundation did not pay for the release of any inmate convicted of a crime.
According to Facebook user, Chris Kehinde Nwandu, who shared the story on his page, the gesture would not be limited to Ilesha prison alone.
