Sallah Celebration: Senator Wamakko Secures Freedom of 21 Inmates

No fewer than 21 inmates of Sokoto Central Prison were on Thursday set free after Senator Aliyu Wamakko made a payment of N2.1million in fines to secure their release.

The Secretary, Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko Free Legal Services, Bashir Jodi, on behalf of the Senator, said, “The gesture is aimed at enabling the beneficiaries to celebrate the Eid-el-Kabir with their various families; such kind of philanthropic acts are highly encouraged during the first 10 days of Dhul-Hijjah.”

Senator Wamakko charged the lucky freed inmates to shy away from all nefarious acts that would land them back in jail.
