“While 10 on death sentences were commuted to life imprisonment and 5 on life imprisonment were commuted to different terms of imprisonment.

 

 

“The 13 inmates serving different terms of imprisonment were pardoned, having served substantial portions of their punishments.

 

 

“In a similar vein, the 10 condemned inmates had been properly indicted and condemned to death by hanging, while 5 were similarly, appropriately indicted and condemned to life imprisonment” he said.

 

 

Mr Ajiboye further said Mr Akeredolu advised the pardoned inmates to utilize the open door offered to them by their release to turn a new leaf and relinquish an existence of wrongdoing.
