Addressing the inmates during the Easter mass, Obi encouraged them not to lose hope, reminding them of Mary Magdalene’s journey from a life of sin to becoming one of the first witnesses of Christ’s resurrection. He instilled a sense of optimism, assuring the prisoners that despite their current circumstances, they can find hope and salvation through faith and self-correction.

Accompanied by Archbishop Valerie Okeke of Onitsha Catholic Archdiocese and other priests, Obi underscored the transformative power of faith and forgiveness.
