The Controller of the correctional service in the state, Suleiman Inuwa, explained that the gesture offered by the Kano State Government of releasing inmates on payment of fines, compensation and pardon will assist in decongesting the facilities and ensure a peaceful atmosphere in the yard.

He appealed to other states to emulate the gesture and also urged the beneficiaries to be good ambassadors of the Nigerian Correctional Service by being law-abiding citizens through displaying good behaviour.

On his part, the chairman of the council on the prerogative of mercy, Abdullahi Rano, thanked the governor for exercising the power conferred on him by the constitution to release the inmates on the recommendation of the correctional service management and the council.
