A video shared on social media features a disabled man who narrated how he was sentenced to 55 years in prison for a crime he claims he did not commit.
The man who was in a wheelchair with both his legs amputated told his sad story. He stated that his unfortunate situation began when his brother brought around some friends.
According to him, these friends happen to be wanted criminals, but he had no idea of this.
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.
He also narrated how he lost both his legs. He said it began with a small injury which got swollen.
When he was taken to the hospital, the doctors said the only solution was for his leg to be amputated.
