I Consider It Honour To Be Incarcerated For Truth – Inibehe

By Adadainfo

Foremost human rights lawyer Inibehe Effiong says he ‘considers it an honour’ to have been ‘incarcerated for the truth’. He stated this after his release from the Uyo Prisons after spending thirty days over an alleged contempt of court.

Recall that the chief judge of Akwa Ibom State, Justice Ekaette Obot, on 27 July, sentenced Mr Effiong to prison following the lawyer’s objection to the presence of two armed police operatives in the courtroom.

His release was welcomed by a jubilant crowd who had gathered at the prison premises around 8am.

He told reporters that, “I consider it an honour for me to be incarcerated for the truth. This voice, till no end, is now louder.”

He later tweeted, “I am back, stronger and more determined to confront the forces of oppression and to continue to speak nothing but the hard truth to the faces of the oppressors of our people.

“I feel sorry for those who thought they can break my spirit by incarcerating me.”
