A sad story has been told of a Nigerian man who went to buy suya at night, got arrested and was wrongly imprisoned for 5 years.

A twitter user with the username @tobijulo91 narrated the touching story after he came across a tweet by @Jollz complaining about Nigeria’s failed justice system.

Quoting the tweet, @tobijulo91 narrated how a former colleague once briefed him of a very sad incident.

According his colleague, her cousin brother had gone out one night to buy suya somewhere close by.

She revealed her cousin brother never returned even after his family had searched for him everywhere that night and afterwards.

Four years later, after searching in vein, his family decided to declare him dead and buried him.

Meanwhile in the fifth year of his sudden disappearance, a certain church on outreach visited the prison where he was and he wrote his aunt’s phone number, gave it to them and pleaded with them to call her and inform her that he’s in prison.

After getting him out prison, the wrongly imprisoned ex convict revealed he got picked by some police men who raided their street on a massive arrest after a crime had been committed in the area that night.

The ex convict revealed he got transferred 5 times and also shared some terrible experiences he had as an inmate.

Read his tweet below:

A former colleague told me how her cousin went out one night to buy Suya down the street and they didn’t see him again. They searched everywhere, couldn’t find him.

Year 1 passed, year 2, year 3, I believe it was in year 4 they decided to declare him dead and “buried” him.
“Year 5 her mum gets a call, a church had done an outreach in a particular prison and a young man threw a sheet of paper with her mum’s number on it. He begged the people to call that number as it was his Aunt’s and he was wrongly imprisoned. Luckily for him they did and her mum went to that prison and that’s how they discovered he was alive oh.

“After another set of wahala they finally got him out. Man was in prison for 5 years!! What happened that night?? He went to buy Suya, there was an incident, police raided the street and carried EVERYONE. He begged and tried to convince them that he wasn’t a criminal, they didn’t listen.

“He was transferred 5 times to different prisons. 2 times to the North and once to the east. What he saw in prison ehn

Bruno Fernandes’s penalty hands United a first home win in a match of two penalties

Published

on

By

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer concedes his side were ‘lucky’ that West Brom had a penalty decision overturned in their 1-0 win at Old Trafford.

 

After a goalless first 45 minutes, Slaven Bilic’s side were awarded a spot-kick early in the second half after referee David Coote ruled that Bruno Fernandes had fouled Conor Gallagher in the box.

 

VAR however intervened with the decision eventually changed after Coote reviewed the incident on the sideline. Replays suggested Fernandes did make some contact with the ball before the man.

 

The Red Devils made the most of the call and were themselves awarded a penalty 10 minutes later which Fernandes tucked away at the second time of asking after his first attempt was saved only for goalkeeper Sam Johnstone to be caught coming of his line.

 

Solskjaer, referencing Aston Villa’s similarly overturned last-minute spot-kick in their 2-1 home defeat to Brighton earlier on Saturday, told BT Sport he thought both penalties should have been awarded.

 

He said: “I looked at the penalty this afternoon at Villa-Brighton, and there’s contact on the ball and the man. In my head, it might be a penalty, and there as well.

 

With this victory, United see themselves in the top half of the table for the first time this seasin with 13 points from 9 games at 8th position.

 

While for West Brom, they remain in the bottom three with only 3 points.

 

United will host Istanbul Basaksehir midweek, while also to play away to Southampton on Sunday.
