A Nigerian man identified as Akpoghene Edeno has proven to many
people that with faith and determination coupled with hard work, nothing
is impossible to achieve.
He was recently called to bar but his life story has left many people
in awe. According to Facebook user, Charles Mallam-Obi, Edeno was
imprisoned for 12 years for a murder he did not commit.
This, however, did not stop him from pursuing his dreams as he not only
wrote WAEC in prison, he proceeded to study law after he was released.
The post reads:
“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!”
