Isah hosts a programme titled: “Berekete Family” which is aired on Human Rights Radio 101.1 in Abuja and streams online via social media platforms.

The programme offers ordinary citizens the opportunity to tell their stories bordering on injustice they have experienced.

However, a recent BBC Africa Eye documentary by Peter Nkanga, a journalist, revealed how isah violates the rights of some persons brought before him for investigation, including the case of a woman that was physically assaulted by him on camera.

The woman was said to have set her brother’s daughter on fire for alleged witchcraft. The suspect reportedly tied the victim’s hand and legs, poured kerosene on her head and ignited fire.

While the human rights campaigner is questioning the lady who allegedly committed the crime, he furiously slapped her more than three times as seen in the documentary.

The series of slaps come when the lady is reluctant to answer the question about where she got the information that the girl is a witch.

Isah asked how she confirmed the girl was a witch. “Nobody…I don’t know what came over me. Please, I’m begging for forgiveness.”

“Tell me what happened, I’ll give you one last chance”, Isah commanded. “I don’t know what happened”, the woman replied.

Isah, within a few seconds, lost his cool and slapped the lady.

Prior to the scene when the suspect appears on the programme, Isah had crowdsourced the sum of N2 million for the treatment of the burnt girl in the hospital.

While some expressed support for slapping the suspect, others argued that he should have restrained himself and not physically abuse the woman.
