53 prisoners freed in Adamawa

05 February 2013, 16:03

Yola - The Adamawa Jail Delivery Committee has discharged a total of 53 inmates from Yola Central Prison.

Mr Nathan Musa, the Chairman of the committee disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Yola on Tuesday.

Musa, who is also the Acting Chief Judge of the state, said that the committee had reviewed 60 cases during its visit to the prison, out of which 53 inmates were discharged.

He said that the committee was set up to investigate and review cases of inmates to determine if they were properly detained.

``The purpose of our visits to prisons is to look at cases of some inmates especially those that have over stayed or are been detained not according to the provisions of the law."

According to him, the committee is empowered to grant bail or discharge such inmates.

He added that the committee would visit other prisons in the state to review the cases of inmates.

The Comptroller of Prison in the state, Mr Andrew Barka, told NAN in a separate interview that the prison service was working with the committee to ensure justice and decongest the facilities.
