Akwa Ibom CJ Sends Lawyer To Jail, Find Out The Reason



A human rights lawyer, Inibehe Effiong, has raised the alarm about being sent to prison by the Chief Judge of Akwa Ibom State, Justice Ekaette Obot.

In a series of tweets on his verified handle on Wednesday, Effiong revealed he was in court on a suit filed by Governor Udom Emmanuel against a lawyer, Leo Ekpenyong, for alleged defamation.


He said, “I have just been sent to Uyo prison by the Chief Judge of Akwa Ibom State, Justice Ekaette Obot, for one month for defending Leo Ekpenyong in the libel suit filed by Governor Udom Emmanuel.”

Effiong added that there was “Already a pending application for recusal asking the Hon. Chief Judge, Justice Ekaette Obot, to recuse Himself. We filed it since 23rd June, 2022. The motion is still pending.”
