In a previous report by Legit.ng, a watchman named Charles Ayisala, who was incarcerated to serve a prison term of eight years after inflicting harm on the eye of an intruder, was finally released.

Charles Ayisala, 46, who is married with children, served four years of the 8-year jail sentence.

The father of five was saved from serving the remaining four years of his original jail term after a Good Samaritan, Ali Ibrahim, paid his court fine.

In a post on Facebook, Crime Check disclosed that before his arrest, Ayisala claimed he found the intruder who sneaked into one of the rooms and later defecated on the floor.

Ayisala alleged that the intruder took offence when he (Ayisala) approached to find out why he discharged faeces on the floor, and an altercation ensued.
