The Story Of The Man Who Have Spent 18 Years In Prison With His Son

Many inmates have served lengthy terms of incarceration. They range in age from the elderly to the young, but they all have many years of incarceration ahead of them. Nobody wants to spend time in prison. There was once a man in Nigeria who was 100 years old, and he was the subject of this tale.

He wasn't the only one incarcerated; his 41-year-old son was also incarcerated alongside him. They were both taken into custody and jailed. Celestine Egbunche, an inmate at Enugu's maximum security prison, was convicted of murder and sentenced to death. Records show that Celestine and his son conspired to murder a man in order to settle a land dispute.

After the man's death, police found and detained both of them. Eventually, they were captured and imprisoned for a considerable period of time. Celestine was imprisoned for 100 years before he was released. He began to deteriorate physically and couldn't walk properly, but his son was always at his side. According to his son, he claimed responsibility for bathing, dressing, feeding, and otherwise caring for his father while he was incarcerated.

Many of his fellow convicts felt sorry for him. Apparently, the man's son and other convicts began pleading with the jail's administration to grant the old man's request for forgiveness. In spite of the fact that the guy and his son were said to be on death row at the prison. In 2018, his case was taken into account, and he was released.

After the murder, authorities reportedly imprisoned him and his son in 2000. In his own home, though, he quietly passed away a year after he was released from prison. Celestine Egbunche, who was reportedly Nigeria's oldest prisoner, was said to be 81 years old. What are your thoughts on this narrative?
