What a bitter experience for the young man known as Happiness, who was
visible on the face of a teenage street hawker after he was released from prison recently after he was held behind the bar languishing over a false accusation portrayed against him. He had spent as much as two years for a crime he didn't commit.
After thorough investigation by Behind Bars Initiative (BBI), it was learnt that the young man was innocent of the charges labelled against him by the Delta state police command.
It was gathered the boy had a misunderstanding with a motorist while he was selling wrist watches along Okpanam road in Asaba and the man reportedly used SARS to lock him up. Just like that, he was branded an armed robber by Nigeria Police.
John celebrated his release with the BBI team shortly after regaining freedom.
