FG Grants Amnesty To 2,600 Prisoners

The Nigeria Government on Thursday granted amnesty to no fewer than 2,600 inmates as part of measures to decongest prison facilities in the country amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Nigeria’s interior minister Rauf Aregbesola made the disclosure during a press conference at the headquarters of the Nigerian Correctional Service in Abuja.

He said that the government’s gesture was borne out of the need to prevent Coronavirus from spreading within those facilities.
