The Ogun State Chief Judge, Justice Mosunmola Dipeolu, has granted amnesty to seven inmates as part of the measures to decongest correctional centres in the state.

Justice Dipeolu while speaking at a jail delivery exercise held at the conference hall of the State Judiciary Complex in Abeokuta stated that the details of the released inmates, including their names, fingerprints, and pictures, were thoroughly documented for record purposes.

She advised the beneficiaries of the amnesty to refrain from committing offences, as they may not be as lucky if they find themselves back in custody in the future.

The officer in charge of the old Custodian Centre, Mr James Ogunmoyede, while speaking commended the state government for its support in ensuring prompt justice dispensation, and charged the Heads of Correctional Centres to ensure prompt notification of the Chief Judge of occurrences.
