His attorney Fareed Ali revealed that to the best of his knowledge the man was not physically threatened in prison.
However he stated that in an effort to err on the side of caution, he requested that his client be put in a cell by himself.
He was speaking this morning on the Power breakfast Show on Power 102.1fm.
Mr. Ali also claimed that he was not in any way concerned for his own safety.
In fact he stated that he has personally only gotten positive responses from the public.
However he was challenged on his social media comment by one of the commentators of the morning show.
Meanwhile, the attorney sought to give an update on another one of his clients, Dexter Gobin. That case grabbed public attention recently and also received public outcry.
Gobin stands accused of the abuse of a toddler, forcing her to drink milk and then beating her when she refused.
The incident was caught on tape and posted to social media.
Ali said that his client had been behind bars for some time and he was seeking to have him released.
