Former governor of Sokoto State, Senator Aliyu Wamakko, on Friday secured the release of 33 inmates at the Medium Security Custodial Centre, Sokoto after paying their fines.

He disclosed that the action was part of perennial gesture during the holy month of Ramadan, to ensure the release inmates to enable them celebrate the Eid-el-fitr with their various families,” he said.

Malam Bashir Mani, Wamako’s Special Assistant on Media and Publicity said this in a statement in Sokoto. He noted that,“The release of the inmates was secured through the Aliyu Magatakarda Wamako Free Legal Services Foundation.

“The 33 benefiting inmates had their fines paid by the foundation as most of them were facing trial base on debt related issues.

“Addressing the freed inmates, Wamakko, who represents Sokoto North at the National Assembly urged them to steer clear of crimes.”
