Many people has been wrongfully convicted in prison. Once an innocent person is convicted, it is next to impossible to get the individual out of prison. It's nearly impossible to determine how many of them are actually innocent once they've been convicted.
Meet Mr. Saani Mahmoud Abdul- Rasheed of the Legal Aid Scheme, who has helped release more than eight (8) people from prison free of charge. Often, he uses his own money to feed the suspects and prisoners.
Head of programmes at Despite media, Afia Pokuaa also known as Vim Lady breaks silence saying these people will not be celebrated or make headlines. These are people and the institutions we should be supporting to do more for the needy and not wait for hashtags because a popular person has been caught by the law.
She made this assertions in a Facebook post, and disclosed that many people are in jail because they didn't have a Lawyer. I appreciate Lawyer Abdul Rasheed for the good work done and Allah may pour his grace and mercy upon him.
