This is part of the activities to mark this year’s Eid-El-Fitr celebration.

Governor Ganduje who paid a visit to the Goron Dutse prison facility said that the gesture is part of the ongoing decongestion exercise to curb the spread of COVID-19.

According to him, over the last 2 months, Kano state has released 603 inmates based on the presidential directive to decongest the correctional centres.

The freed inmates later received five thousand naira for transportation back to their respective homes.
