A Nigerian man has allegedly spent six years in a maximum prison without trial after he was arrested while charging his laptop at a neighbour's house.
The disclosure was made by a Twitter user with the handle @Hausa_girl, who said the suspect identified as Junior is not a criminal.
The Twitter user said Junior was arrested alongside his neighbour, and six years after, he is still awaiting trial.
@Hausa_girl tweeted: "This guy has been in maximum prison for six years without trial. He went to charge his laptop in his neighbour's house. That was how he was raided with the guy. Junior is not a criminal... Six years of his life is wasted and he's still awaiting trial.
"The criminal they arrested told them Junior was innocent but they didn't release him. Let's get him out please... #JUSTICEFORJUNIOR"
As expected, reactions have trailed the post. Below are some of the reactions from Nigerians:
@MMacdada tweeted: "A lot of innocent people re languishing in prison for crimes they know nothing about #justiceforjunior."
Another Twitter user who commented described the situation as unfortunate.
