Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq

About 101 inmates at Oke-Kura maximum and Mandala medium correctional centres have been granted executive pardon by the Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq-led government in Kwara state.

ROYAL NEWS reports that the release was in line with the directive of the federal government for the decongestion of prisons across the country as part of efforts towards curtailing the coronavirus pandemic in the nation.

The State Comptroller of Correctional Service, Adebisi Francis, said that 83 among the total number of inmates who benefited the government gestures were released outrightly.

He urged the freed inmates to always shun all criminalities and be useful to the society at large.

He added that state has gave the inmates second chance and they should return their gesture by contributing their quotas to the society.

He said further that the beneficiaries are those that have serve 75 percent out of their jail term, those with challenge and aged inmates.

Francis, however, appreciated the governor for giving the freed inmates palliative that will aide their incorporation into the society.
