Rabi’u Kwankwaso, senator representing Kano central, on Friday secured the release of 170 inmates from various prisons in Kano.

Through Kwankwasiyya Development Foundation, his initiative, the lawmaker paid the fines imposed on the inmates.

Maliki Kuliya, Kano commissioner of justice, commended the lawmaker, saying  the gesture was in the spirit of the month of Ramadan.

He said the foundation had also secured release of another 41 inmates in Zamfara, Kaduna and Kebbi states after paying their fines.

According to him, the foundation had also concluded arrangements to pay the fines of another 107 inmates in Katsina and Jigawa states.

He called on the beneficiaries to be of good conduct after reuniting with their respective families and avoid anything that would lead to their return to prison.

“This is an opportunity for you to go and join your families and friends and it is our hope that you will not do anything that will bring you back to prison,” he said.

The inmates, who were mostly youths, were also given N5,000 each to transport themselves to their respective towns and villages across the state.

    This is not normal. These guys will only be at the mercy of the senator eventually. And, his sole intention is to unleash them on his opponents as political thugs.
