Ibrahim Lawal 24 from Niger State freed after 4yrs Awaiting trial.

Heard his story last week from a court staff and took it up. Name forwarded to Delta State Attorney General’s office. After thorough vetting of his case file, the Directorate of Public Prosecution issued a letter to the court ordering Lawal’s release. (Nolle Prosequi)

Lawal was arrested for two fighting and because he was unable to secure his release from police custody, he was charged before a magistrate court in Asaba for attempted murder.

Special thanks to Hon. Barr Peter Mrakpor (Attorney General and Commissioner of Justice Delta State) who have continued to hear the cry of the poor masses.
