The Chief Judge of Lagos State, Justice Oluwafunmilayo Atilade, on Wednesday released 153 awaiting trial inmates from the Kirikiri Maximum and Medium prisons.

Among the pardoned inmates were 79 being tried for capital offences.

Three of the freed inmates had been standing trial for over 15 years.

Atilade said the amnesty granted the inmates was in line with her statutory duty to ensure that the prisons were not congested.

She said, “I advise the pardoned inmates to make the best of this amnesty by not returning to criminal activities.”

The chief judge solicited the support of all relevant stakeholders in the justice system in the effort to decongest the prisons.

Atilade was accompanied on the visit by senior judges from the state high court, officials of the Lagos State Ministry of Justice, members of the Nigerian Bar Association, some non-governmental organisations and representatives of the police.

In his remark, the Deputy Controller in charge of the Kirikiri Maximum Prison, Seye Oduntan, thanked the CJ for the amnesty gesture.

Oduntan, who noted that there were still many inmates who deserved pardon, urged the chief judge to ensure the continuity of the exercise.

As of Wednesday, the Kirikiri Maximum Prison with a holding capacity of 1,053 inmates housed 1,235 inmates. Among them were 772 awaiting trial inmates and 209 convicts. There were 171 inmates on death row, while 83 were serving life sentence.

At the medium prison with a holding capacity of 1,700 inmates, there were 2,853 inmates as of Wednesday.

Among them, 2,726 were awaiting trial, 128 had been convicted, 25 designated as lodgers, 19 were detainees, while one inmate was condemned.

We Must Get You – Police Tells Senator Dino Melaye

Published

on

The Nigeria Police has vowed to arrest Dino Melaye, Senator representing Kogi West at the Senate. Mr Melaye had earlier in the day raised alarm of a police seige laid at his Abuja residence.

Moments after raising the alarm, the Police forcefully gained access to his compound and has continued with the siege. The police personnel believes the lawmaker is in the building despite denial from Melaye.

Stating its reason for the siege, the Police in a statement from its spokesman, Jimoh Moshood, said the Senator is wanted in connection to an alleged attack on a police personnel.

“The Police operatives currently in the residence of Senator Dino Melaye are to effect his arrest to answer to the case of attempted culpable homicide on the shooting of a Police Officer, Sgt Danjuma Saliu, attached to 37 Police Mobile Force (PMF) while on duty at a stop and search point along Aiyetoro Gbede, Mopa Road in Kogi state,” the statement from Moshood said.

“The above offence was committed by Senator Dino Melaye and his armed thugs in Kogi State on the 19th July, 2018 when they shot and wounded a police officer, Sgt Danjuma Saliu, attached to 37 Police Mobile Force (PMF) while on duty at a stop and search point along Aiyetoro Gbede, Mopa Road in Kogi state.

“The Police Officer is yet to recover from the gunshot injury he sustained during the attack and still under intensive medical care. “The Police investigators have written the Clerk of the National Assembly for Senator Dino Melaye to report at Kogi State Police Command, CIID, Lokoja for him to answer to these offences against him under investigation in Kogi State Police Command but he has bluntly refused to report himself to the Police.

“The Police operatives will continue to be in wait at the residence of Senator Dino Melaye until he surrenders himself for arrest. The offence for which Senator Dino Melaye is being investigated is capital in nature and not compoundable.

“The Force will not tolerate attack on its personnel by any individual no matter how highly placed. The law must take its course,” it added. Melaye and the police have had a running battle since the senator was named by suspects in a murder case.

The latest development comes days after the lawmaker hinted of plans to abduct and inject him to death.
