Mr B was a mechanic before his arrest. This was his only source of income and he was well known in his community.

He had a relationship with the owner of one of the cars he was repairing and when the car knocked, he was given the sum of N700, 000 to buy a new engine.
He bought the engine but the owner of the car found out that the engine he bought was bad. She got furious and demanded that her money be returned but when he was unable to return it, he was charged to court and he ended up in the prison.
We were able to get him registered under our legal aid scheme and released while he is still paying back the sum to the complainant.
