FCT Chief Judge Pardons 10 Inmates
Two prisoners at the Kuje medium prison have been released unconditionally, while another eight will go home, should their fines be settled by well-meaning Nigerians.
This is according to the Chief Judge of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court, Justice Usman Bello.
He also said that a panel has been set-up to fast-track cases awaiting trial between now and the first quarter of 2017.
Justice Bello said that the exercise is part of efforts by the judiciary to decongest the nation’s prisons which are being stretched beyond capacity.
