Lagos State Office of the Public Defender (OPD), acting on the legal advice issued by the State’s Attorney-General exonerating 253 #EndSARS protest suspects, has secured the release of 107 youths from police facilities and Correctional centres in the state.

The government, in a statement issued yesterday by the agency, said the release warrants were obtained by the OPD from Ogba Magistrate and Yaba Magistrate courts respectively, based on the order of the office of the Attorney-General clearing the suspects.
