Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano has set free over 100 prisoners in the various correctional services in the state.
The Governor granted the inmates the state pardon few minutes ago.
The reason for the amnesty is yet to be known as at press time.
According to Anambra Broadcasting Service, A.B.S, the governor granted amnesty to over 100 prisoners serving various prison sentences in the state.
Pundits believe that the Anambra State Government may have decided to free prisoners to avoid or avert the the likely situation in its closet state, Imo state where rampaging gunmen razed the Nigeria Police Force Headquarters and the Federal Correctional Service in Owerri, freeing thousands of inmates.
