The Ekiti State Chief Judge Justice Ayodeji Simon Daramola has released twenty-eight awaiting trial inmates of the Federal Prisons, Ado Ekiti. Daramola gave the order yesterday during a visit to the facility after reviewing the cases of two hundred and eighty-four awaiting trial inmates.
Fourteen inmates were unconditionally released; the rest were freed based on the advice of the State Director of Public Prosecution (DPP). One other inmate was, however, granted bail.
Addressing stakeholders after the exercise, Justice Daramola said the state judiciary may establish two new magistrate’s courts to fast-track the administration of criminal justice system.
