A touching photo of mother and her one-month-old baby, who are currently held behind bars at a Nigerian prison, is being shared online.
The photos were shared by Evangelist Christian Chukwuka, the founder of Abounding Grace Foundation, who paid a visit recently to some women in a prison in the eastern part of the country.
The baby identified as Onyedika was reportedly thrown in jail along with the mother after her sentencing for a crime which wasn’t revealed.

In his Facebook post, the evangelist asked, “are babies supposed to serve prison sentence with their mother or be kept in motherless babies’ home or with their relatives outside until mother is released”.
The evangelist also revealed that there are over fifty babies who are under silent pain with their mothers in prison.
