I have personally known Tolu for a number of years and had the privilege of working with him. Few incarcerated individuals that I met ever warranted a break in their sentences, but occasionally one such soul comes around that changes your perspective of the true meaning of injustice.

Yes, Tolu did commit a crime and yes, he did deserve punishment, but sometimes the punishment meted out becomes far too excessive for the crime committed.

During the time Tolu has been incarcerated, he has accomplished more in the way of self-improvement, community service and yes, even Government service than most free folks.

I implore anyone who can see through the fog of the Government Smoke screen, review this man’s records of achievements and freely sign his Petition for Clemency at

Thanks, Mr. Mansfield.

Your passionate plea is being posted. It’s easy to see from what most who know Tolu that he’s not only a changed man but was never really a criminal but got into evil ways like many young people who got into bad company and into ill-advised ways. I’m sure he’ll get his second chance.

    Everyone deserves a second chance and Tolu definitely has earned his over the years. He has proven himself that he is a better person and ready to move on with his life. God bless

      I believe Tolu’s near two-decade imprisonment must have taught him a lot of lessons, and he does deserve a second chance. It serves no purpose for him to continue to be locked up as he has paid society for misplaced priorities that led to his imprisonment.

      We hope he will get the signatories that would enable him get out of jail and start a new life. The remaining seven years of his term would benefit none: society or himself by way of learning new lessons in jail.
