The 21 year-old suspect in Google review of a local mental health facility on Nov. 22, 2014 mentioned being “imprisoned” against his will at the facility by Ekong. “The person who imprisoned me was Caroline Ekong, whose ego is so large that she would never be able to admit doing something wrong,” He wrote.
