Pralarg International

Like many others, He is a product of society; a society that does not think or care for her next generation. A society that does not believe in the social integration of young ones for a better tomorrow. Like many others, he was not enlightened to understand his responsibility as a good citizen and the implication of his actions, let alone his rights as guaranteed by the constitution. He only understood crime to be robbery, rape and murder. Just like any other member of the society, he has carelessly and ignorantly done many things but in all, he didn’t see it as doing anything against the law because most of his actions were hinged on the need to survive just like any other person which should be done righty. The reality set in when he joined the Nigerian Prisons Service in August 2001. He realized that he was just fortunate. He discovered that a more than eighty per cent (80%) of those in prisons across the country got there through ignorance or were simply victims of circumstances.
Pralarg Objectives
  • Pralarg advocates bringing relative peace to the society by reducing the influx of people to prison through human right protection, the enlightenment of the citizen and empowerment. We have to do this because of the present existence that encourages criminality and back to crime syndrome of the ex-inmate.

Case Success


The organization is pioneered by Comrade Pralagian Akinwunmi Olayemi seasoned visionary, who is passionate about what the organization stand for with years of experience in prison matters. The organization also boast of the experienced, credible, talented and equally passionate individual within and outside the country who are professionals in the various field seen as relevant to the actualization of the vision and objectives of the organization with all of them exhibiting common traits of excellence and service to humanity. The organization was established in 2014 and has contributed and still contributing to achieving a crime free society with an enlightened populace.


            PRALARG is committed to providing the best possible opportunity for ex-convicts to make a new start in life upon their release, and thesuccessful reintegration of ex-convicts into the society would depend largely on how ready the public accepts and supports them.

In this connection, the organization has been actively promoting public acceptance of and support for rehabilitated ex-convicts through public enlightenment and education.

Pointedly, we have organized publicity and public education activities to help the public better understand the needs and problems of rehabilitated offenders and to appeal for their support. These activities include special TV and Radio programmes, symposiums on the employment of rehabilitated offenders, exhibitions, TV and Radio announcements in the public interest, the appointment of local celebrities and public figures as Rehabilitation Ambassadors etc.

Furthermore, ex-convicts do not only suffer stigmatization from the members of the public but they face other challenges like homelessness, joblessness, and lack of finance. This is so because many lose their jobs during the period of imprisonment, their wealth and properties to court fines and series of court adjournment.

As a result of these, Pralarg has established some channels which welcome and facilitate public involvement in the rehabilitation of the offenders. These include:

  1. Pralarg Rehabilitation Volunteer Group: This group provides a good opportunity for members of the public to be directly involved in the rehabilitation of ex-convicts.
  2. Employment Assistance: The organization advocates equal employment opportunities for rehabilitated ex-convicts and where appropriate the organization will also facilitate projects initiated by the non-government organization to employ rehabilitated ex-convicts.
  3. Collaboration with NGOs: Presently, many religious bodies and non-government social service agencies are working with us to help ex-convicts reintegrate into the community. These organizations through the employment of volunteers, social workers, peer counsellors, render counselling, employment, accommodation assistance, recreation and religious services for rehabilitated ex-convicts.

These are important because the risk of ex-convicts returning to crime will be drastically reduced.

The organization has several interventions to prevent the influx of people to prison through Alternative Dispute Resolution because conflict cannot be prevented but the best instrument is to use the positive input to prevent litigation. We have also prevented abuse of right by law enforcement agents using their offices to perpetrate several illegal arrest and extortion in Nigeria.


     The present prison condition in Nigeria is not reformatory, rather it aggravates the criminal tendency of the inmates that supposed to be reformed or take a new leave. Our experience has revealed major problems confronting prisons in Nigeria, these include:

    (1.)       Lack of CLASSIFICATION, non-violent inmate after prison experience usually comes out hardened.

    (2.)       Non-affordability of the criminal justice system in Nigeria. Most inmates and their families lose a lot of money during their prosecution. This makes the inmates come out hardened or fall back to crime in order to survive.

    (3.)       Stigmatization: This happens to both ex-convicts and anyone who has passed through prosecution in Nigeria. Whether convicted or discharged and acquitted, people stigmatize anybody that has passed through the prison; this makes it difficult for people to turn a new leave.

    (4.)       Employment: It is very difficult for ex-convicts to secure employment after discharge hence this makes most of the discharged inmates to fall back to crime.

    (5.)       Settlement: Many ex-convicts found it very difficult to find a place of abode after release from the prison and this makes lives miserable for them.

    (6.)       Contamination of Diseases and Infections: Due to the overcrowding in the prison, inmates contact diseases and infections.

    (7.)       Some inmates, because of restriction and harsh conditions in the prison get mentally derailed.


These two worlds have a lot to contribute to global peace, depending largely on the way we handle them. If we fail to help the vulnerable in society, the prison will be flooded with inmates and lose its purpose and credibility. Likewise, if we fail to help or reform the inmates, then we should rest assured that on discharge, these set of people we have refused to reform will make the society a living hell. A greater percentage of those in prisons got there as victims of circumstances a lot awaiting trials. The fact still remains that if we do what we are supposed to do as a society and as individuals, many of them will not be there in the first place. We believe we needed to do something both for those incarcerated and the public in general in addressing some of these challenges including the knowledge and information gaps identified. The things we ignorantly and carelessly do but that is against the law it is said that there is no ignorance in law. Our passion for a change gave birth to PRALARG believe that the best time to act is NOW. ‘So long as any society has a system that lets people out of prison, it is in when they went in’-Erwin James
