EKITI State Chief Judge Justice Ayodeji Daramola has ordered the release of 34 awaiting trial inmates from the Federal Prison in Ado-Ekiti.

The chief judge, according to a statement yesterday, gave the order after reviewing the cases of the 273 awaiting trial inmates during his visit to the prison.

Eleven of the 34 inmates were released unconditionally and the remaining 23 were released based on the advice of the Director of Public Prosecution that they had no case to answer.

Three other inmates were granted bail.

The chief judge, who addressed stakeholders after the exercise, hailed the authorities of the prison for its clean environment and the remarkable improvement in the facilities since his last visit last year.

He also hailed the prison authorities for the provision of a clinic and some sports facilities for the inmates.

But, the chief judge stressed the need to ensure that the clinic was provided with adequate medical personnel and drugs.

He called on religious bodies, non-governmental and public-spirited organisations to support government’s efforts at making prisons a correctional and rehabilitation centre indeed, by donating relevant and needed materials.

Hailing stakeholders involved in the administration of criminal justice in the state for their contributions to the dispensation of Justice, he, however, urged them to redouble their efforts to ensure that justice is delivered speedily in all matters.

Justice Daramola advised the released inmates to be of good behavior.
