My name is Moses Akatugba. For 10 years I was on death row in Nigeria.
I was arrested, tortured and imprisoned when I was just 16 years old. I was sentenced to death.
Police officers beat me with machetes and batons. The pain I went through was unimaginable.
This May, my execution was halted and I walked free. Your Write for Rights letters saved my life. Thank you.
Please, help others who are being subjected to human rights abuses, as I was. Sign up for the 2015 Write for Rights campaign.
I am proof your Write for Rights letters work.
Without the thousands of letters sent in support of my case, I might never have been granted my freedom. Three other people were pardoned with me.
Amnesty International activists like you are my heroes. You’ve inspired me to become a human rights activist – to fight for others.
Will you join me? Will you fight to free the unjustly imprisoned as a participant in this year’s Write for Rights?
