The Nigerian man in Pakistan identified as Innocent Chima who was seen in a viral torture video, has come out to reveal he is alive.

Chima took to social media to make a video to appreciate Nigerians especially his kinsmen for coming to his aide.

Days ago a video surfaced online showing a man, said to be a Nigerian, tied up and tortured as he cried out to a brother at large whom he claimed used him as collateral for drugs.

Chima was said to have been filmed by a gang to force his brother out of hiding to meet a financial obligation the duo had entered into with the merchants.

Fortunately, a group of wealthy Igbo men in Nigeria came together to set Chima free by contributing money to pay the druglords since Andrew is nowhere to be found.

They spoke with Chima and assured him that he will be fine as they are set to pay the collateral.

In a fresh video, he happily appreciated everyone that came together to donate money for his freedom.

Some concerned natives of their homeland have however threatened to deal with his uncle if he is ever found.
