Innocent and Condemned in Nigeria

To bring an end to the use of the death penalty in Nigeria, NMAP partnered with the Legal Defense and Assistance Project (LEDAP), a leading Nigerian criminal justice NGO, to create a media advocacy campaign for legislative reform to outlaw the use of the death penalty as a punishment. The campaign focuses on the staggering amount of innocent men who are sentenced to die for crimes they did not commit. This video was created for LEDAP to share across their social networks. It uses real footage collected by LEDAP’s lawyers of men who were exonerated.
