Charles Aboki (pseud) was arrested for the alleged offence of kidnapping sometime in 2020. Upon his arraignment, he was remanded in a Custodial Centre.
The court case was adjourned to a future date each time he was brought before the court while no witness was called to testify by the Prosecution. Charles never had legal representation.
Our legal team in Abuja met with Charles and provided free legal services to him. Our legal team also applied for striking out the charge against Charles for lack of diligent Prosecution, having spent two years on remand without an appropriate trial.
The court granted our request and Charles was discharged in June 2022.
