COVID-19: Osun CJ Frees 26 Inmates
In an effort by government to decongest Custodial Centres in curbing the spread of COVID-19 pandemic, the Chief Judge of Osun State, Justice Oyebola Ojo, has freed twenty six (26) awaiting trial inmates from Ilesa and Ile-Ife Medium Security Custodial Centres.
According to him, the inmates were released during the Chief Judge and her team’s special visit to the Custodial Centres in Ilesa and Ile-Ife.
“Welcoming the CJ, the Controller of Corrections Osun State Command, Segun Oluwasemire, appreciated the CJ and her team for the special visit to the facilities in finding time out of their busy schedules even at this dreaded period of Covid-19.
“He assured the gathering of his unwavering resolve and that of his officers and men, not to falter in the discharge of the NCoS’ mandates of reformation, rehabilitation and reintegration just as he charged the released inmates to be of good behaviour and put to  good use all vocational trainings and knowledge acquired while in custody.
“In separate remarks, officers in charge of Ilesa and Ile-Ife Custodial Centres, Johnbull Saudje and Babatunde Ajani, respectively, who are Deputy Controllers of Corrections (DCC) pleaded with the Chief Judge, to make the visit, a quarterly exercise as the benefits derived from it administratively cannot be overemphasised”.
