This study reports an empirical data on the personality profile and the accompanying in-depth key information interview on the living experiences of 406 males and 98 female convicted inmates of 10 randomly selected of the 231 prisons in Nigeria. Data revealed a notable deviation from the United Nations minimum expectations of treatment of offenders. The study thus agreed with the other advocates of prison environment conditions reforms and observance of human rights therein that there is a wide room for improvements as these prisons a more of training and recruitment centres for crime commission among the inmates than the character remediation and personality reformatory centre it was designed to be. Most times they serve to harden the first time criminals. This study thus views it essential in the wake of the reforms that the present democratically elected government is undertaking in economy as well as social life of the people, not to leave the prisons out. This is in especially the area of physical structures and accommodation of the inmates and more importantly the addition of professional help givers to the list of staff members and the provision of special time for the inmates to receive the spectrum of psychological help that are focused towards the modern day essence of imprisonment.
