As Nigerians continue the protest against SARS and police brutality, Scooper News has decided to bring you the story of another Nigerian

who was 57 years when he regained his freedom.

Clinton Kanu was in Port-Harcourt prison for 27 years after getting arrested at the age of 30 for a crime he knew nothing about.

He is now at the forefront, calling fo the reform of the Nigerian judicial system.

Kanu was reportedly arrested at the age of 30 and convicted of murder in 1992.

He was subsequently remanded in Port Harcourt Maximum Prisons in Rivers state, while his appeal against the judgement dragged on slowly.

The case eventually got to the Supreme Court, where he was acquitted of the murder charge on April 5.

While in prison, Kanu reportedly continued his education and obtained Doctorate degree.

Kanu said some of his former fellows in prisons are serving terms for offences they did not commit, hence, his decision to dedicate himself to ensuring a holistic reform of the judicial system.

The report quoted some of his relatives who were at the Port Harcourt Maximum Prisons to receive him as saying that his unlawful conviction brought frustration and anger to the family.
