Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Dick­son S. Adama, Kaduna

The Con­troller, Nige­rian Pris­ons Ser­vice in Kaduna State, Abubakar Garba, yesterday said Gover­nor Nasir ElR­u­fai had ap­proved the es­tab­lish­ment of sec­ondary schools in the state’s pris­ons.

Speak­ing to news­men af­ter free­ing pris­on­ers who were re­cently par­doned by the gover­nor, Garba said skills ac­qui­si­tion cen­tres would also be es­tab­lished in the pris­ons.

“We will start a pi­lot scheme very soon with the Kaduna pris­ons. We hope that by next year the pi­lot scheme would reach other prison for­ma­tions across Kaduna State,” he said. Garba said the gover­nor was ad­vised by the ad­vi­sory com­mit­tee to re­lease 14 pris­on­ers, five of whom were ear­lier con­demned to death.
