A young Nigerian man expresses his deep gratitude to be said to have regained his freedom again after 14 years in prison.
A video going viral on social media has captured the horrifying experience of a man who cannot adequately describe the joy of tasting his freedom after more than a decade behind bars.
In the video, he can be heard talking about the transformation of the Oshodi area of Lagos State, where he claims to have slept under a bridge at some point.
According to him, his release was due to the Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, who pardoned several prisoners.
“Everywhere remains the same, take a look under the Oshodi Bridge before we sleep. I built such a bird’s nest at night; na iron dem take the building. 14 years in prison is no small thing.
“Thanks God! Na Sanwo Olu release me. Since 2009! I love Oshodi like this, I can’t believe it. I thank god for my freedom. Glory is god; if I don’t thank God, I’ll say I’m being ungrateful to someone, he said in the video.
However, he called for celebration from his fans when he finally got a taste of freedom again. He captioned the video, “Getting out of prison after 14 years, I can’t believe I’m a free man now. Please congratulate me, my fan.”
