Chairman of the Prisons Council board, Reverend Stephen Yenusom Wengam has indicated that prisons in the country will soon be turning away new convicts for lack of space.

Speaking on Starr FM’s Morning Starr, Rev. Wengam noted that the conditions of the various prisons in the country are deteriorating.

“We are almost there, and we have to take that decision. If society doesn’t come to our aid, if government doesn’t come to our aid we are going to turn away prisoners one of these days,” he said.

There have been several concerns that prisons in Ghana need immediate national attention due to how bad facilities are; however, the situation remains unchanged.
