A yet-to-be identified Nigerian man has been set free by prison officials after spending 7 years behind bars over a crime he knew nothing about.

The news of his release was broken through a tweet by a Lawyer, Malachy Odo, who facilitated his release from jail.

Odo stated that the man was arrested in 2013 when police raided a location in Oworonshoki.

He revealed that it was the brother-in-law of the young man that reached out to the organisation that he represents.

Odo tweeted, ”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.”
