  • 70% of prison inmates are awaiting trial – Dambazau
  • Kano— Minister of Interior, Abdulrahman
    Dambazau, confirmed, yesterday, that more than
    70 per cent of Nigerian prison inmates were on
    the awaiting trial list.
    Dambazau, who disclosed this during a visit
    with Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State
    to Kano Central Prisons, told the inmates that
    the visit was to demonstrate to them that the
    government was aware of their existence and the
    challenges they were grappling with.
    He said the action was to mark this year’s Eid-
    el Fitr celebration.
    The minister, who was apparently touched by
    the plight of some of the inmates, said: “The
    high number of awaiting trial inmates is
    worrisome because the prisons are meant for
    convicts, but you find out at the end of the day
    that more than 70 per cent of the people there
    are awaiting trial inmates.”
    He said some of the inmates were supposed to
    stay for a few years but ended up staying for up
    to 15 years while awaiting trial.
    The minister lauded the state governor for
    providing a vast piece of land for the building of
    3,000 capacity modern prisons in the state.
    While conducting the minister round the prison,
    Ganduje revealed that he had authorised the
    release of no fewer than 550 inmates as part of
    the celebration of Eid-el Fitr.
    The governor said he would assist the inmates,
    who were freed based on the nature of their
    alleged offences and reformation signs
    demonstrated by them. He also promised to
    provide them with logistics to return to their
    communities and reunite with their families.
    The governor, however, asked them not to return
    to criminal acts likely to take them back to
    prison,
