The Ghana Broadcasting Corporation’s investigations has revealed that the authorities at the Camp took the decision to comply with the president’s directive to prevent the spread of COVID-19 pandemic.










According to the investigations the alleged inmates have been compelled to suspend all public gatherings hence the closure of the camp for visitors.

They only depend on a Presbyterian GO HOME Project, an NGO whose major aim is to safe guard the fundamental human rights of alleged inmates by providing them with reintegration services, accommodation, food, security and others.

According to the source, the GO HOME Project was able to support them with a borehole, veronica buckets, sanitizers, PPEs and soap to enable them to practice the safety protocols.

Life has also become a night mare in the camp for these women since they can no longer go out to work within the community in order to fend for themselves due to the insufficient supply of their basic needs.

The inmates are therefore calling on the government, stakeholders and other benevolent organizations to help them fight the COVID-19 pandemic.
