U-Report: "PeacePro" Urges Nigeria Government To Free All Unsentenced Prisoners

Attorney-general Malami

Reported By A Citizen Reporter

A Non Governmental Organisation, Foundation for Peace Professionals also known as PeacePro  has called on the Federal Government of Nigeria to free all unsentenced prisoners in Nigeria. 

The organization also said that, setting free suspects, who have been held in detention without justice, is far more honourable than keeping innocent people perpetually in prison. 

In a statement by Abdulrazaq Hamzat, an Executive Director of PeacePro on Friday, the organisation announced its advocacy to end what it described as "destructive incarceration " in the country.

Gentlemen of the Press.

Let me call for a minute silence in honour of all those killed by the Boko Haram terrorists, Fulani herdsmen, bandits and kidnappers in the country.

You are all aware of the gruesome murder of the Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Michika Local Government Area of Adamawa State, Rev. Lawan Andimi, by the terrorist group, Boko Haram, because he refused to be converted to Islam. Although, the group initially demanded for the sum of N50m and, when against all odds, the ransom was ready, they asked for €2m. It was in the process that they reached out to our people in Adamawa State to notify them that since the gentleman had refused to be converted to Islam, they had decided to behead him. And that was what they did. In the same state, just last Sunday, a clergyman, Rev Denis Bagauri was murdered by unknown gunmen in his residence at Mayo Belwa of Adamawa State, all because he was a Christian. You are also aware of the beheading of 11 Christians by Islamic State in West Africa on Christmas Day of 2019 in Maiduguri including a bride to be.
