Man who spent 27yrs in prison for crime he didn’t commit, released in Rivers
According to Rivers State Television, Clinton Kanu was arrested at the age of 30, convicted of murder in 1992 and remanded in Port Harcourt Maximum Prisons.
His appeal against the lower court judgement dragged on slowly, but eventually he got to the Supreme Court of Nigeria. There, he got acquitted of the murder charge on the 5th April, 2019.
Now freed, Kanu is seeking a reform of the nation’s justice system and the prisons.
