An inmate serving a life sentence at Awka Prisons in Anambra State, Jude Onwuzulike, has enrolled for a master’s degree programme in information technology at the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN).
The 39-year-old father of four matriculated on Monday at the prison as part of the seventh matriculation ceremony of the distance learning institution.
He revealed that he obtained a first degree and post-graduate diploma from the Nnamdi Azikiwe University and the University of Nigeria respectively before his ordeal.
“My first degree was in accounting in 2005, while the second was in mathematics. When I came here, I did a post-graduate diploma in information technology and now, I’m doing a master’s degree in the same discipline
“I noticed some lapses in the way the case that brought me here was investigated, which someone needs to correct. So, this course I’m studying will assist me to carry out forensic investigations in similar circumstances,” he said.
Adamu urged other inmates to take advantage of the free education provided by NOUN to better their lots.
