Man rearrested for same crime a month after finishing jail term

An ex-convict, simply identified as Tunde, has been arrested in Lagos state for robbery, this is a month after finishing a jail term for the same offense.

The prison is meant to reform a person, but it seems the ex-convict in this case wasn’t reformed a bit.

Sharing a throwback picture of Mr Tunde, he can be seen arrested in 2017 for robbery by the Rapid Response Squad in Lagos state, and again arrested for the same crime in 2019.

Many social media users have claimed that the ex-convict is simply addicted to crime, while some have blamed the prison for not reforming him.

“Oh Tunde! 🤦🏽‍♂️ in 2017 he was arrested for robbery and he did time in Jail for it. He got out in Nov 2019 and was arrested again in Dec 2019 for the exact same offense in Alausa. He’s been transfered to SARS before facing the Judge this week. #TheGoodGuys”

See some reactions gathered by LailasNews below;

@kennygee_70: That’s the only thing this guy can do with his life. If you jail him for 100years and release him, he’ll go back to the life of crime he was nabbed for. Obviously the jail has failed as a facility to correct these guys and make them better humans. Something has to be done.

@Dominic_Ebi: A thief will always be a thief. We keep them in jail so that the streets can be safe. If society wishes to change them then they should send them to correctional facilities with trained personnel

@yekinilaw1: Arrested for robbery in 2017…how many years was he given? Most likely he’s doing this with a weapon. We don’t need this kind of people in our midst. This time around, he deserved a maximum sentence.

@Lord__Dexter: What is the rehabilitation process for criminals in Nigeria? I’m quite sure a good number of ex-convicts go back to crime after doing time.

@BelloKhalid: I think our prison is not a correctional center that is the main reason he is still going back to the same crime.
