El-Rufa’i in a statement said the gesture was to extend compassion to deserving prisoners during New Year.

It said that the governor’s action was based on the recommendations of the Kaduna State Advisory Council on Prerogative of Mercy and in line with the provisions of Section 212 of the Constitution.

The 10 prisoners were serving jail terms ranging from three to six years, with less than six months left to complete their terms.
