A Nigerian man accused of kidnapping 'Takoradi Girls' told Ghana court yesterday how he was denied food in prison, despite his asthmatic state of health.

John Orji, was arrested from the neighbouring country, Togo, last year for kidnapping Takoradi Girl. On Wednesday, the 15th day of July, 2020, One of the two Nigerians arrested in connection with the kidnapping, Orji, told the presiding judge at Sekondi High Court that he was not being given enough food in the prisons where he was awaiting trial.

The young Nigerian man, John Orji, said he Asthmatic patient and needs to eat well and enough but did not, as the prison he awaited trial denied him sufficient food.

"My handlers are not taking care of my health. I'm asthmatic and the medicine I'm being given requires adequate food, but I'm not getting that," he said.

Justice Adjei-Frimpong Who was the presiding judge, referred the matter to the prison to take good care of him and insisted on legal representation for the two suspects, including Sam Udoetuk Wills. He admonished that a suspect deserves to be adequately fed, especially when he/she is physically challenged.

The accused persons, Udoetuk Wills and Orji, had earlier told the court that they had no legal representation which the judge said the authority should provide lawyers for them for smooth process of the case. Justice Frimpong assured them of writing to the Legal Aid for lawyers who would represent them as the case was for the public interest.

The case was adjourned to July 29, 2020. John Orji's cry for adequate feeding was was however heard and the judge granted it by asking those in charge of the prison to make sure he is properly fed.
