He was subsequently rushed to the Interberton Hospital for surgery after the Prison’s infirmary administered first aid.

Commenting on the incident, the PRO for the Central regional Prisons Daniel Machator said the suspect is currently in a segregated cell while the committee investigates the incident.

“Around 8:30 we heard an unusual noise in one of the blocks of the maximum security prison so officers rushed on, upon reaching there, we saw the victim lying in a pool of blood, so he was taken to the infirmary and given a first aid and later rushed to the cape coast teaching hospital,” he told Accra-based Starr FM.

"The details of the incident was that there was a confrontation between the victim and the offender and this led to the offender using a sharp object to slash the victim’s penis. We have been trying to find out why he committed the offence and he keeps telling us to ask the victim, since the victim is receiving medical care, we have set up a committee to commence investigation while the offender has been placed in a segregated cell to prevent other inmates from attacking him for his offense,” he said.
