A cell police has been set up at the Kumasi Central Prison in Ghana to stop inmates from engaging in ‘homosexual’ activity and maintain law and order.
Africanews is reporting that this comes after Superintendent Cephas Nuwordu, the officer in-charge of the prison confirmed news that homosexual suspects in the prison suffer serious physical abuses if caught in the act. According to his statement to local media reports, some inmates try to have anal sex and they are beaten by other inmates until they are rescued by prison officers.
Nuwordu however failed to share if the newly setup task force will protect gay inmates from harm or if proper investigations will be done to ensure false accusations. However, he added that the prison does not entertain sodomy as homosexuality is illegal in the country.
