BREAKING NEWS: IN RESPONSE TO DPA PETITIONS, OVER 20 ABUJA JUDGES AND MAGISTRATES SET UP DESKS IN KUJE PRISON TODAY TO FREE AS MANY AS POSSIBLE INMATES

We expect up to 100 inmates to be freed today and tomorrow in Kuje Prison alone. Other prisons in the Abuja area will be receiving similar visits. They are concentrating on cases of inmates who have not been to courts in two years and those who have been awaiting trial for many years.

In October of this year, DPA sent out two petitions demanding the review of many cases of inmates who have been unjustly held in the prisons and the Abattoir police detention center.

In response to DPA petitions, on November 4th and 5th, the judges went to Abattoir and freed or evacuated over 600 detainees. And today, they are extending that to the prisons.
