As a way of decongesting correctional centres in Enugu state, the government on Wednesday expressed its readiness to adopt prerogative of mercy for the release of some prisoners.

The state’s Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Kingsley Udeh stated this when the Catholic Institute for Development Justice And Peace (CIDJAP) Human Rights group paid him a visit in his office.

Udeh who reiterated Governor Peter Mbah’s readiness to actualise quick dispensation of justice in Enugu State “by proposing a prerogative of mercy” however did not say when the state government intended to commence the programme.

The commissioner hailed CIDJAP for their efforts in rendering support to prison inmates and assured of government’s collaboration for optimal service delivery.


In his remark, leader of the CIDJAP Human Rights in the state, Prof. Monsignor Obiora Ike, told the commissioner that the group provided free legal services for prison inmates, who could not afford to hire a lawyer.

Prof. Ike said the group also reintegrated released inmates back to the society and provided free accommodation for the homeless ones.
