The Principal of the Ikoyi Prison School, Mr Ibikunle Idris, in an interview with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday in Lagos revealed how the 59 inmates who sat for the 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) fared..

Idris, who said the performance of the inmates, in spite of their being in incarceration, was impressive, revealed that 36 out of 59 inmates who sat for the 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) scored 180 and above.

He said that one of the inmates scored 236; the highest among candidates in the school during the examination.

The principal said;
“The highest score among the inmates we presented for the 2017 UTME is 236. 
“I am impressed with this year’s performance, compared to last year’s performance in the same examination in terms of average. 
“The 59 candidates that wrote this year’s examination is an improvement over 36 persons that registered in 2016,’’ 
He attributed the success story to “the new penchant for learning’’ demonstrated by the inmates.

According to him, the efforts put in by various individual volunteer teachers from within and outside the facility also contributed to the performance of the inmates.

He said the prison authorities also improved their facilities, which enhanced qualitative teaching.

The principal also commended JAMB for assisting the school with 60 computers and accessories for the conduct of the UTME. 
Idris told NAN that the prison authorities were following up the academic progress of some inmates that were recently released as part of its aftercare service.
“We are still getting in touch with them. 
“We try to follow them up and offer guidelines on what to do at every given point in time. 
“Recently, three of them, who had left the facility, called to seek assistance on how to further their education.’’
