Grand Khadi of Kano State Grants Bail to 147 Offenders, Reviews Long-Pending Amputation Case

The Grand Khadi of Kano State, Tijjani Ibrahim-Yakasai, has established a committee to reassess the case of a convict who has been awaiting amputation for 18 years. Additionally, Mr. Ibrahim-Yakasai has granted bail to 147 individuals with minor offenses held in two custodial centers in the state.

As the head of the Sharia Court of Appeal, a Grand Khadi holds a significant position in the judicial system.

The decision to review the case and release offenders is part of an effort to alleviate congestion in custodial centers within the state. The move comes after a Kano Shari’a Court initially ordered the amputation of a convict’s left leg and right hand for theft, a sentence that has not been executed for 18 years.

The committee’s purpose is to thoroughly examine the prolonged incarceration of the convict and the delayed execution of the sentence at the Kano Correctional Center.

Mr. Ibrahim-Yakasai advised the released inmates to maintain good behavior and avoid any actions that may lead to their return to correctional facilities.

The Controller of Corrections, Kano Command, Suleiman Mohammed-Inuwa, expressed gratitude to the Grand Khadi for addressing the issue of overcrowding in the state’s facilities. He encouraged the released individuals to exhibit exemplary behavior for themselves and others in society.
