He added that he went with his brother and his friends to have a drink one day, and as they sat and drank, the police suddenly appeared and arrested them. He said his plea of innocence fell on deaf ears.

He was then taken to the police station and subsequently tried in court where he was sentenced to 55 years in jail. He has so far done 14 years of his sentence and has yet to appeal for a retrial since his family is financially handicapped.
