There are over 40 prisons in Ghana. These prisons can be classified under Local Prisons, Female Prisons, Juvenile Facility, Open Camp Prisons, Special Facility, Central Prisons, Maximum Security Prison and Medium Security Prison.
Some of the prisons in Ghana are very dangerous and below are just four of them. Law breakers do end up in prison and this article is purposely made to remind law breakers to know what is ahead of them should they be caught one day.
#1. Ankaful Maximum Security Prison
As the name indicates, it is a highly secured. Ankaful Maximum Security Prisons is the latest Prison established in Ghana. It is located at Ankaful Prisons Complex, Cape-Coast in the Central Region. It is the Prison with the most security facilities. All kinds of prisoners are kept in that prison. One should not dream of going there.
#2. Kumasi Central prison
This is one of the most oldest prisons in Ghana. It is located in Kumasi in the Ashanti region. It is number two most dangerous prison in Ghana because of the huge number of persons in one cell at a time. Persons who get bailed off do complain a lot about the heat at the cells. People barely find place to even sleep.
#3. Nsawam medium security prison
Overcrowding at this prison is also something else. The male ward is supposed to take 851 persons at a time, but the current population is around 3000. This cell is located in Nsawam in the Eastern region of Ghana
#4. Tamale Central Prison
Tamale Central Prison is located in Tamale township. The danger at this prison is the high number of prisoners. The facility can take less than 1,000 prisoners at a time. But the current population is very huge. It is really a big punishment to spend just a day there.
Prison is not a nice place to be at. This article was purposely made to alert persons who often break laws that, there is a place which is not pleasant for them when they are caught.
