Public Relations Officer, Kano Correctional Service, Musbahu Lawan Kofar Nassarawa told Daily Trust, Yellow has completed his jail term, adding that he had since enrolled in the correctional facility secondary school.
“He has never offended anybody or breached any rule in the correctional facility. He had lived a good and exemplary life worthy of emulation while serving his jail term and was respected by many”, he was quoted as saying.
Recall that Yellow was arrested in Bayelsa in 2015 and was imprisoned by the State High Court Judge, Justice Jane Inyang.
