The Committee on Prison Inmates Rehabilitation in Katsina State has released no fewer than 40 prison inmates, convicted on minor offences.

The Chairman of the committee, Abubakar Bindawa, said at the end of the committee’s visit to Musawa Prison that the committee visited 12 prisons.

Mr. Bindawa said that a pregnant woman was among those freed, adding that each of the inmates was given N10,000 to embark on small-scale businesses.

He said the gesture was to enable the ex-prisoners reunite with their family members and become decent citizens.
