Nasarawa Chief Judge Frees 32 Prison Inmates
The Chief Judge of Nasarawa State, Justice Suleiman Umaru Dikko, has discharged 29, granted bail to three inmates across prison formations in the State this Yuletide.
A breakdown of the total inmates freed shows that Lafia Prison has the highest number of 21 prisoners, Medium Security Prison Keffi has four while Wamba and Nasarawa prisons have two each.
The State Controller of Prisons, Alhaji Aliyu Achor, thanked the Chief Judge for putting smile on faces of the released inmates, admonishing those still under prison custody to maintain peace and keep their hope alive as next visit could be their turn.
This is coming on the heels of the Controller’s courtesy visit to the Chief Judge when he took over the command from Cp Ekanem Ekwere Ekanem on 23rd October, 2017.
