“Education and vocational training programmes exist in most prisons, but they often lack necessary materials and are limited to a handful of inmates each. Only convicted prisoners are eligible to take part in these opportunities.
In most prisons, the only activities in which prisoners awaiting trial may participate are religious services, and in some prisons the right to go to church or the mosque is restricted to a limited group. As a result, prisoners awaiting trial in Enugu, Kano, Kuje and Suleja prisons are only allowed out of their cells once a week and in some cases even less frequently than that.” (AI, 26. Februar 2008, S. 21) 
“3.5 Education and rehabilitation
Some facilities visited by Amnesty International offered schooling or work opportunities to a limited number of convicted prisoners, but even these centres lacked sufficient books, educational supplies and vocational training materials. Many workshops and libraries were locked and seemed not to be in use at all. Inmates complained that it was not possible to work towards rehabilitation, saying. ‘I have spent here eight years. To me, to be in my place is a waste. I have not learned anything. I never achieved anything,’ one said. Another put it more simply, telling Amnesty International, ‘We stay idle.’
Prison directors recognized the desirability of education and rehabilitation but told Amnesty International that they could not achieve those objectives. As one forthrightly admitted, ‘We are doing little and nothing here. We don’t have the materials.’” (AI, 26. Februar 2008, S. 28)
“All the prisons visited by the Special Rapporteur are characterized by severe overcrowding, consisting of an inmate population which is typically double or triple the actual capacity of the facility. While Port Harcourt Prison is designed for 800 detainees, a total of 2,420 are presently held. The vast majority of the prison population (in Port Harcourt 2,217) is held awaiting-trial (in pre-trial detention) or held without charge for lengthy periods, as long as ten years. They are subject to even more severe conditions than those of convicts: are held in overcrowded cells, lacking appropriate hygiene facilities, with insufficient places to sleep, inadequate and/or insufficient food, water, and medical care, let alone any opportunities for educational, leisure, or vocational training. Children on remand are often held with adult males. However, female prisoners are provided with considerably better facilities.” (UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, 12. März 2007, Abschnitt: “Conditions of Detention”)

7. […] Detainees are locked up in the cell for the entire day, except from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Furthermore, pretrial detainees are barred from participating in any recreational, vocational or educational activities.
8. The cell for convicts is less crowded. These prisoners can participate in recreational, vocational or educational activities. Pretrial detainees might be transferred to the convict cell if they pay, or are in bad health.” (UN Human Rights Council, 22. November 2007, S. 26, Absatz 7)
„The Court of Appeal sitting in Lagos ruled in 1996 that the human rights of prisoners under sentence of death should be respected. Much has improved since this judgment. Cells are less overcrowded. Most death row prisoners are nowadays allowed outside their cell on a daily basis. Some are allowed to work, others are not. However, for many death row prisoners, conditions are still harsh.“ (AI, 21. Oktober 2008, S.25)
