60 Inmates Regain Freedom As Amosun Celebrates Birthday

60 Inmates from various prisons formations in Ogun State have been granted pardon by the State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun to mark his 60th birthday celebration.

Amosun who said the gesture was not meant to encourage or condole indiscipline, said he acted within the ‘’prerogative of mercy’’ power of his office, expressing dissatisfaction with the level of congestion in the prisons.

He assured that government would liaise with appropriate authorities, with a view to decongest them, while advising the inmates freed from Sagamu, Ilaro and Abeokuta prisons, to be of good conduct and avoid acts that could incarcerate them again.

Governor Amosun promised that vocational training would be organised for those who regained their freedom, to enable them to be useful to themselves and the society at large.
