By: King Brown (G. Bassa Correspondent)

Buchanan- Grand Bassa County – Buchanan Central Prison Superintendent, Tom Kamala has alarmed over the overcrowdedness of the prison facility and wants the government to release inmates with lesser charges who have overstayed.

“As we speak, there are a hundred prisoners in the facility and the prison was built for 47 prisoners, so if you do your calculation it means that we are running two prison compounds present in the County.”

Mr. Kamala said, the overcrowdedness of the prison is a serious issue that needs to be addressed immediately or else it could create a health situation problem amidst the COVID-19 Pandemic.
