Prisoners at the Jamestown Camp Prison in Accra are appealing to the government to help improve the conditions in the prison.
Checks by Adom News revealed that the prison, which was built about 70 years ago, has not witnessed any major renovation with about 350 inmates sharing 10 bathrooms.
In an interview with Adom News during a health screening exercise by the Eastwood Ababa Ministries in the facility, they explained that all the inmates rely on 10 dormitories in the facility for accommodation.
“Our dormitories are congested with about 35 people sleeping in a single room leading to the outbreak of diseases in the facility,” they complained.
The Deputy Director of Prisons and the Officer in-charge, Patience Baffour Boni appealed to well-meaning individuals to help solve the problem.
Director of Social Transportation at the Eastwood Anaba Ministry, Nana Jumor Sarpong urged the youth to be law abiding citizens.
