In an interview with the PUNCH, Effiong said that he was rejected from the Uyo Correctional Facility and thrown into Ikot Ekpene prisons, which was quite “horrible and disgusting.”

In his words: “When I got to Ikot-Ekpene, I was admitted and immediately confronted with the reality of the abominable neglect of the correctional centre in the country. Even though the Ikot Ekpene Prisons building is relatively new, as it was recently renovated by former Governor Godswill Akpabio, life there is still very horrible. jamb results
“Most Nigerians may not know how bad the condition is until they experience it. I had to remove my shoes when I was admitted. They took my properties and took account of them. Then, I had to be shown the cell where I was going to spend two weeks. The custodial centre in Ikot-Ekpene is terribly and disgustingly congested.”
The lawyer said inmates were treated like animals as they did not even have a space to lie down.
“They sit with their legs tied and others sit close to them. That is the condition that some of them have had to live for years since their sentence. I was so enraged by what looked like an attempt to replicate the Nazi concentration,” he explained.
Effiong said the only way he could manage the experience was to cough out N50,000 to stay in a privileged cell as he could not stay in the dehumanizing condition he found the inmates at the facility.
He said, “The officers said it would cost me N50,000. I knew I had just two weeks to stay, but I had to pay that money so I could get a space. There were three of us in the room. There was no bed; there was just a small mattress. I adjusted. As I said, I had always mentally prepared for incarceration.
“So, we had to sleep on the floor. There was no net for me to shield myself from mosquitoes. I had to share the toilet with other people. It wasn’t palatable. But that is what people even consider to be one of the best in the country. I don’t think that is even fit for any inmate in this country to be kept.”
The activist singled out a certain Enobong Gideon Eyoren as the officer who tortured him by brutalising and cuffing him. He added that his hair and beards were forcefully shaven.
