A man who was allegedly arrested for a crime he did not commit has finally regained his freedom after spending five years in jail.
Twitter influencer, Yemi Fasipe who shared the emotional story via his handle @YemieFASH on the microblogging site, said he saw the man in court after he was discharged as no evidence could be established against him.
According to Yemi, the said man was mistakenly picked up for being a kidnapper by some SARS officials. The man was also shot in the leg which led to him being amputated.
He wrote; “I saw this guy at the court now, he was discharged & acquitted after spending 5yrs in prison, he was mistakenly arrested alongside some kidnappers, he was shot by SARS during the arrest & had to be amputated. Imagine going through all these without committing any crime.
I spoke with his lawyer and advised him to write a petition to the Ondo State panel of inquiry on his behalf.”
