Clinton Kanu, a 57-year-old Nigerian man who spent 27 years in prison for an offence he did not commit, has been released and is now calling for the reform of the judicial system in the country.
According to Rivers State Television, 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.
