Jailed Senator, OBA

The Senator representing Uyo in the National Assembly, Senator Bassey Albert was Wednesday released from the isolation facility of the Ikot Ekpene Correctional Center after being given a clean bill of health. 

In line with the protocols of the Custodial facility any new inmate is usually subjected to 14 days quarantine in the holding area until he is medically fit to be allowed to mingle with other inmates. 

Senator Albert was said to be in high spirit when he was transferred to the main prison.  

“For someone who is going to spend several years with us, there is always a need to be sure that he is in a good bill of health to avoid being a parent source of any contagious illness among inmates”, a prison staff told our reporter. 

He said that the reason most people could not see the senator before now, is because he was being isolated from the public. 

“The quarantine is not only for Covid19 but every other contagious and life threatening disease and the prison officials were happy that the Uyo senator has been in excellent health.”

Having been released from the isolation facility, OBA has now been cleared to play games and interact with other inmates. 

The Ikot Ekpene Custodial Facility was built by the administration of Chief Godswill Akpabio and has a lot of recreational facilities and skill acquisition equipment which the senator is expected to engage in, as he seeks to come out reformed upon completion of his sentence.
