Covid-19: Gov. Badaru pardons 74 inmates in Jigawa

Jigawa State Governor Alhaji Muhammad Badaru Abubakar has pardoned seventy-four inmates of the state prison to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

This is coming after President Muhammad Badaru flagged-off the 2020 presidential pardon and clemency program to fast track the decongestion of prisons over the fear of COVID-19 spread in the country.


Badaru explained that inmates released are those with minor offences and people with insignificant fines.

“Seventy-four inmates were pardoned to decongest some of the congested prisons in the state”

“The inmates include those with minor offences and those with insignificant fine to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the state”


He advised the beneficiaries to desist from any act of criminality and be of good behaviour.
