73-Year-Old Man Locked Up In Benin Prison After His Age Was Reduced To 42

A 73-year-old man whose age was reduced to 42 by a Police officer and charged to court with murder – has regained his freedom. According to Kola Edokpayi, a police officer attached to Homicide Unit of Edo State Police Command Headquarters charged the old man to court with murder after reducing his age from 73 to 42 as a result of the inability of his family to pay him (IPO) a whopping sum of N500,000 for bail.

Kola revealed that the IPO charged the man to court even when both two parties had resolved their matter through Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) and affidavit of withdrawal was deposed at the State High Court by the Complainant to that effect.

The old man was so excited upon his release from Medium Security Prison, Oko, Benin after spending 25 days in Police custody and another 31 days in Prison custody.
