Democracy Day: Fintiri Frees Six Prison Imates, Commutes One Other On Death Row To Life Jail

Adamawa State governor, Ahmadu Fintiri has freed six inmates serving various prison terms in five Correctional Centres across the State.

The  Governor also commuted the death sentence of another inmate to life imprisonment.

A statement issued on Sunday by Humwashi Wonosikou, the Press Secretary to the Governor, said the development was in commemoration of this year’s June 12 Democracy Day as part of efforts to decongest some of the overburdened Correctional Centres as Nigeria marks Democracy Day.

This, it said, was in exercise of the Governor’s power, conferred on him by Section 212 (i)(b) of Nigeria’s Constitution and following recommendations of the Council on the Prerogative of Mercy

The statement explained that  the seven inmates are currently serving their jail terms in Yola old, Jada, Numan, Mubi, and Jimeta Correctional facilities.
