Nigerian Lady who was wrongfully charged and sentenced to 20 years in Ivorian prison dies after contracting an infection



Babalola Itunu, the Nigerian lady who was wrongfully charged and incarcerated for a crime she didn't commit in Cote D’Ivoire has reportedly died after contracting an infection.



Earlier this year, LIB reported that 21-year-old Itunu Babalola, from Oyo state, was rotting in a notorious Ivorian prison for refusing to accept police settlement of N100,000 for the crime of burglary committed in her house.



In a statement issued by Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM) at the time, it was noted that a former prosecutor in Cote D’Ivoire in collaboration with the police twisted the case against Babalola and accused her wrongly of human trafficking, leading to her conviction for 10 years, out of which she has unjustly served two years.
