Former Governors of Plateau and Taraba states, Joshua Dariye and Jolly Nyame have been released from Kuje Prison where they were serving various jail terms for sundry offences as governors.

The Council of State, led by President Muhammed Buhari, had on April 14 approved the pardon of the convicts, a decision which generated outcries.

The FCT Spokesperson for the Nigerian Correctional Service, Chukwuedo Humphrey, confirmed their release to Newsmen.

The two former governors, until they were granted pardon by Buhari, were serving jail terms for corruption allegations.
