Gov Yusuf cautions judges against indiscriminate release of criminals in Kano


Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf of Kano State has cautioned judges against unwarranted release of thugs arrested for violence, saying it contributes to the increase in crimes and criminality.

The governor underscored the threat of frequent release of arrested thugs and other criminals to the wellbeing of the state’s residents, stressing the importance of prompt and equitable dispensation of justice, rather than releasing them prematurely.
