NIGERIA: BENUE STATE GOVERNOR ORTOM GRANTS AMNESTY TO 50 CONVICTS

January 24, 2022:

Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has granted amnesty to 50 convicts serving various jail terms across the country.
The signing of the warrant of amnesty by the Governor followed recommendations from the State Advisory Council on Prerogative of Mercy and is in compliance with section 212 of the Nigerian Constitution.
Commissioner for Justice and Attorney General of the state, Barrister Michael Gusa who briefed journalists on 20 January 2022 in his office said 34 convicts who were sentenced to death and awaiting execution from Custodial Centres in Jos and other centres were released by the Governor’s approval.
The convicts, according to the Justice Commissioner, had appealed their death sentences but the appeals failed, stressing that they now have a second chance in life.
He stated that 15 convicts, who were on death sentence, also had their sentences commuted to life imprisonment, while a convict had his 21-year jail term reduced to 15 years.
Some of the convicts granted amnesty are Benue indigenes while others are indigenes of other states who committed the offences in Benue state and were convicted before being moved to Jos Correctional Center to serve their jail terms.
Barrister Gusa explained that the Governor’s approval also followed a recommendation by officials of Jos and Sokoto Correctional Centers where the convicts served and attested to their good conduct, stressing that they had turned a new leaf.
