Sanwo-Olu Frees Six Inmates
By Maureen Ogolor
In what can be described as rare gift for the Christmas season, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has signed two Executive Orders, with one commuting death sentences of three convicted inmates to life imprisonment and the other setting free six others.
The two Orders; Executive Commutation of Death Sentence Order and Executive Grant of Clemency Order were signed by the Governor on Christmas day and are both expected to take immediate effect.
Speaking earlier on the two orders at the Cathedral Church of Christ, Marina, Lagos where he observed the Christmas day service with his family, Governor Sanwo-Olu said Nigerians should return to God with hearts of gratitude for His protection over the country and Lagos State, saying despite the numerous challenges facing the nation, she is growing stronger.
The Governor said the Christmas period is a season of reflection, blessings and gift.
