A Nigerian man has been released from Ikoyi prison in Lagos state yesterday, September 25th, after spending seven years in there for a crime he did not commit.
Lawyer Malachy Odo, who facilitated his released, recounted how he got involved in helping the man secure his freedom.
”7 years in Ikoyi Prisons. Raided at Oworonshoki and roped into a crime he knew nothing about. His brother-in-law reached out to us here late last year & God sealed his release today.”
Odo also revealed that the victim needs to be rehabilitated because of the changes of the environment.
He further said,
“Told him an Uber will be booked to take him home and he was like “what’s Uber?”
Had to explain to him.
He needs a lot of rehabilitation and catching up to do.
