NON-CUSTODIAL PUNISHMENT ADVOCATED FOR MR. OBI

On the quest to drastically reduce and curtail prison decongestion and prolonged detention in the Nigerian Prison System, Gavel has been advocating tirelessly and pushing for the implementation and integration of Non-custodial Sentencing in the Nigeria Justice System.

As part of the Non-custodial sentencing implementation programme, Gavel legal team advocated for Mr Obi(pseud), who, despite being found guilty of a one-count charge of stealing, was a benefactor of the non-custodial punishment implementation after Gavel’s legal team ensured that he was sentenced to just one-month community service instead of imprisonment.
