Kirikiri correctional facility in Nigeria has hosted a beauty pageant for female inmates of the facility.

Dubbed “Miss Cell 2022”, the competition was to celebrate women facing the law, on the occasion of this year’s International Women’s Day.

Over 10 of the inmates were given the opportunity to showcase their talents, while one topped all to emerge the winner for the night.

A modelling session, choreography and other talent shows were organised to entertain the inmates within the correctional facility.

Chidinma Ojukwu, who is facing trial for the murder of CEO of Super TV, was crowned winner.

Ms Ojukwu, the alleged murder suspect is an undergraduate who was accused of killing Usifo Ataga, on June 15, 2021.

She is charged with murder, stealing, and forgery alongside her sister, Chioma Egbuchu, and Adedapo Quadri and is standing trial for the offence at the Lagos High Court, sitting at Lagos’s Tafawa Balewa Square (TBS).

The Nigeria Correctional Service (NCS) in Lagos said that she was allowed to participate in a beauty contest as part of its effort to rehabilitate the suspect and other inmates.

But mixed reactions greeted the pageant with many social media users unhappy that the murder suspect was allowed to partake in the competition.

DO YOU PEOPLE REALLY WANT TO BE IN CHIDINMA OJUKWU SHOES JUST TO HAVE A SHOT AT “MISS CELL”? HOW CAN YOU PEOPLE BE ENVIOUS OF SOMEONE IN PRISON? THIS IS DEMOCRACY. YOUR SENTIMENTS AND EMOTIONS DON’T COUNT. SHE’S ALREADY BEING PUNISHED AND SHE MAY NEVER BE FREE AGAIN. HTTPS://T.CO/S6UL2PXBYD

@TVCCONNECT WE ARE PRAYING FOR THE RULE OF LAW AND NOT THE RULE OF MAN IN OUR COUNTRY. THE PRISON AUTHORITY HAD FOLLOWED THE LAW AND ALLOWED CHIDINMA OJUKWU TO CONTEST, WE ARE COMPLAINING. PLEASE, MORALITY IS DIFFERENT FROM THE LAW. #YOURVIEWTVC

@TVCCONNECT WHILE CHIDINMA OJUKWU, THOUGH INCARCERATED, HAS NOT LOST HER RIGHTS AND SHE’S INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY AND CONVICTED FOR ANY CRIME, ALLOWING HER TO PARTICIPATE IN PRISON’S BEAUTY CONTEST IS A SLAP IN THE FACE OF DECENT NIGERIANS. IT’S UNCALLED FOR! #YOURVIEWTVC
