Following the recommendations of State Advisory Committee on Prerogative of Mercy, Borno State Governor, Kashim Shettima, yesterday, pardoned 30 prisoners.

Twenty of the inmates were released by the Governor at the Maiduguri Maximum Prisons. He said the inmates needed not to remain in prisons, adding that government would train them in skills and other trades to enable them become useful and contribute their quota to the development of the state.

Shettima, however, warned that ‘’your release does not mean that you should go back and commit criminal activities, because your being in prison was an act of God. So today, 20 of you are going home with transport money.

“Comptroller of Prisons will be paying you monthly salary of N10,000 until all of you are trained in various skills and traders.”

According to him, after the training of the inmates, government would provide them with take-off grants, so that they would be gainfully employed.

Among those released are Musa Salisu, Hamidu Babagana, Musa Kyari, Mohammed Ibrahim, Ali Isa, Abubakar Fannami, Ibrahim Kaka, among others.
