My name is Okashatu Ibrahim, I am a scavenger, as I was scouting for waste aluminum, I saw a street light pole on the ground at lugbe federal housing airport road, so I carried it. As I was going civil defense officers arrested me and said I stole a street light pole, I told them it was a vehicle that pushed it down.
At civil defense office a statement was written by one of the officers and I was asked to sign it although it was read to my hearing before I signed it. It was exactly what I said that was written down, from there I was taken to kuje prison. My parents and siblings live in Kaduna and I don’t know their numbers by heart. Whenever am taken to magistrate court zone6 the complainant is usually not in court and it delays my case.
