A Nigerian man identified as Akpoghene Edeno, who allegedly spent 12 years in jail for a crime he did not commit, has just become a lawyer, 7 years after he was allegedly released from prison.

According to Facebook user, Charles Mallam-Obi, Edeno was locked up in a prison for 12 years for a murder he did not commit.

This, however, did not stop him from pursuing his dreams as he wrote WAEC in prison, and proceeded to the University of Benin (UNIBEN) to study law after he was released from the prison.

7 years after his ordeal, he was among the thousands of other lawyers called to the Nigerian Bar on Tuesday in Abuja.

“Akpoghene Edeno is my childhood friend who spent twelve years in prison for a murder he didn’t commit. He wrote WAEC while still in prison. He came out in 2012 and immediately proceeded to the University of Benin to study law. Today, he has been called to the Nigeria bar.

“His story is a testament to how indomitable the determined human spirit is. He could have been bitter at the society for the injustice he suffered for an offense he didn’t commit. He could have been depressed. But he chose to show up and face the challenges of life.

“Congratulations, my brother. The sky isn’t even your starting floor!”
