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

The activist had come under severe criticism after a BBC documentary, showed him slapping a lady who was accused of setting her brother’s daughter on fire over an allegation that the little girl is a witch.

Isah has since apologized for slapping the woman, stressing that his action was triggered by the level of injury and pain suffered by the six-year-old girl who was brought to his office.
