COVID-19: Akeredolu pardons 29 inmates

As part of the move to contain the spread of the CoronaVirus pandemic, especially at the Correctional Custodial Center in Ondo State, Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, has ordered the release of 29 inmates forthwith.

This is in exercise of the power conferred on the Governor by paragraph (d) of the sub-section (1) of section 212, of the Nigeria constitution (1999 as amended).

The said inmates are those who have served portions of their sentences after being duly sentenced to various terms of imprisonment.

The Governor believes that decongesting the Correctional Custodial Center will also help prevent the spread of the Covid-19, not only amongst inmates, but also the officials.

Segun Ajiboye
Chief Press Secretary to the Governor
