A middle aged man, Mr. Kennedy Omokaro who was charged to court for uprooting his master’s cassava ,had his bail perfected by human rights activist; Comrade Kola Edokpayi.
It was reported that after uprooting the cassava, the man sold it for N3,000 to buy food stuff because his employer has not paid him for two months.
According to Kola Edokpayi, the young man had already spent three months in Benin Prison before his plight came to his notice last weekend ,and he swung into action and got the arrested man out of prison within 72 hours.
Speaking after the young man’s release from incarceration, Kola Edokpayi said;
“I must work the works of Him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work”.
