    ”The visit is in compliance with the presidential directive to decongest custodian facilities as part of measures to contain further spread of COVID-19.

    ”Under my watch, the judiciary in the state would work towards ensuring speedy administration of justice as well as tackle the menace of justice stagnation.

    ”The Criminal Justice Committee in the state would soon come up with modalities to ensure that those whose cases are stagnated for so many years without progress get their cases concluded and justice delivered.

    “I have also asked that names of inmates that had stayed for five years and above be compiled for onward submission to the Executive Governor of the state for pardon.

    “We recommend to the governor to grant them pardon as part of efforts to ensure justice is served as well as decongest custodian facilities,” the CJ added.

    She also commended the authorities of the Custodian Centres for teaching the inmates various skills and enrolling those interested in education at the Open University.
