One hundred million Naira has been earmarked for upgrade of facilities to serve as correctional centres in Kaduna state.
This is coming in response to calls by parents who had their children at supposed rehabilitation centres in the state, which have now been shut down by the government.
Thirteen inmates from the closed centres are undergoing medical examination at the Neuro-Psychiatric hospital in the state capital.
TVC News Correspondent, Tesem Akende visited some of the centres and reports that the centres have been shut down, and the inmates reunited with their families.
But some parents have been questioning government on what to do with their children who they say are recalcitrant.
But the children were quick to counter the belief that any good could be achieved from the centres.
Thirteen of inmates from the centres are now receiving medical examination at the neuro-psychiatric hospital in the state.
Owners of the closed centres have been charged to court, but they insist there is no case, against them since they obtained all necessary documentation
