Titilayo Benson imprisoned without trial for a decade


Titilayo Benson, aged 38 years had been locked up in KiriKiri prison for a decade without facing any trial. She had been arrested due to a fight between herself and her friend that resulted into her friend's death.

Titilayo Benson eventually faces trial in Lagos state high court after 10 years. Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo presided over her case and was unduly shocked to hear she had been imprisoned without any proper trial.

In final judgement, Justice Taiwo had worked out her release after a series of plea bargains between the state government and defendant.

Titilayo Benson finally regained her freedom on Thursday, June 24.
