A young in Ghana named Abdullah Mohammed has narrated how he was sentenced to 25 years in prison but ended up spending 11 years behind bars over a crime he did not commit.
In an interview with SV TV sighted by YEN.com.gh, Adbullah indicated that the unfortunate ordeal befell him on June 3, 2009, at Aboabo.
Abdullah recounts that he was only 15 years old at the time when he was walking with a young girl who was his age mate around eight o'clock in the evening when he was besieged by a group of men.
After besieging him, the men said, "he is one of them" and beat him mercilessly until the 15-year-old was extremely weak and then sent him to the Zongo Police Station where he was convicted.
According to him, it took about five days for the CID in charge to come and question him, and even then, he was beaten to confess his crime but he had no idea what he was even supposed to confess.
Following that moment, the gentleman, who was only living with his blind grandmother, was sent to court and jailed, although the judge admitted that he did not have a strong basis to imprison him.
Abdullah Mohammed was sentenced to 25 years in prison but released on parole after 11 years of being in jail.
