Man Released After Spending 27 Years In Prison For Crime He Didn’t Commit In Rivers

A 57-year-old Nigerian man who spent 27 years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit before he was released in Rivers State, has called for a reform in the judicial system in the country.

The man who was identified as Clinton Kanu was arrested at the age of 30, and was convicted of murder in 1992 and remanded in Port Harcourt Maximum Prisons.

Kanu’s appeal against the lower court judgement was dragged on slowly, but eventually he got to the Supreme Court of Nigeria where he got acquitted of the murder charge on the 5th April, 2019.

It was further learnt that the Nigerian man who spent 27 years in prison for crime he didn’t commit, but eventually got released in Rivers state, continued his education in Prison and obtained a PhD.

Some of his relatives who were at the Port Harcourt Maximum Prisons to receive him expressed joy that he is reuniting with his family after twenty seven years.

According to them, the unlawful conviction of their brother brought frustration and anger to the family.
