Humanrights group, Headfort Foundation, who helped secure his release said Mayowa was arrested when he stepped out of his house to buy food.
‘’Abayomi was arrested in March 2023 while buying food on his street. He was initially taken to the China Shop Police Station in Lagos and later transferred to Cement Police Station.
After spending one month at the police station, he was charged with Armed Robbery and arraigned in court on 4/07/23. Mr. Abayomi spent four months in Kirikiri Prison before our team of lawyers at our Mobile Office in Magistrate Court Ogba intervened.
We represented him in court at no cost and followed up on his DPP advice. The advice stated that Abayomi had no case to answer, and he should be discharged. He was released by the court on 6th October 2023 after four months in prison.
There are thousands of innocent inmates across Nigerian prisons who need your help. Support Headfort Foundation to make an impact.”..CONTINUE.FULL.READING>>>
