He said that the gesture was part of NBA’s efforts ensure proper environmental and personal hygiene among inmates, with a view to preventing the spread of Coronavirus in the facilities.
“Considering the situation we found ourselves due to COVID-19, the association decided to provide the items to Hadejia and Dutse correctional centres.
“We donated 100 pieces of hand sanitisers, cartons of laundry and bath soap, as well as bags of detergent to the two facilities,” he said.
The chairman added that the association also sensitised the inmates on social distancing and other preventive measures to prevent them from getting exposed to the Coronavirus.
