Among the 68 freed inmates(some of them pictured), 40 were released earlier while 28 were set free last Tuesday.

Meeting them for the first time on Sunday in Lagos after securing their release, Senator Kwankwaso promised his continuous supports to the freed inmates, urging them to be law abiding, and always operate within the confines of the laws of their host communities.

His word: “I congratulate you and your well-wishers, and urge you to be good ambassador of your parents. Today i will give you N20,000 each, so that you can go back to your various states.

“And if you want to come back to Lagos or go elsewhere, i enjoin you to abide by the laws of your host communities.”
