This government-run facility in the Niger Delta town of Eket is meant to be a psychiatric hospital. In reality, it is a prison. The oil industry, which has brought billions of dollars into the Nigerian economy, has arguably been a disaster for the Delta region from where it is extracted. Corruption, inequality, and violence have plagued the region ever since the discovery of the resource. The Niger Delta, Nigeria, October 2012

من المفترض أن يكون هذا المرفق الذي تديره الحكومة في بلدة إيكيت في دلتا النيجر مستشفى للأمراض النفسية، ولكنّه عبارة عن سجن في الواقع. صحيح أنّ صناعة النفط حققت ايرادات بقيمة مليارات الدولارات إلى الاقتصاد النيجيري، إلا أنّها كانت بمثابة كارثة لمنطقة الدلتا التي يتم استخراجها منها، فقد هيمن الفساد وعدم المساواة والعنف منذ اكتشاف هذا المورد. دلتا النيجر، نيجيريا، أكتوبر 2012
