Peter Ennin, a visually impaired prisoner, who had been jailed over a crime yet to be known was released after Christian Atsu paid his fine.

Crime Check TV reports that Ghana’s prisons are not disability-friendly and the burden of keeping such inmates falls on the Prison Service despite having limited resources to cater for them.

In a post on social media, Crime Check TV, disclosed: ''Blind prisoner, Peter Ennin released after Christian Atsu pays his fine. We don't have disability-friendly facilities in our prisons, so the burden of keeping such inmates falls on the Prison Service that have limited resources.''

YEN.com.gh earlier reported that with help from Black Stars and Newcastle midfielder, Christian Atsu, the desire of 17-year-old Abdul Hamid Ibrahim, to further his education to the tertiary level would materialise.

Despite chalking 7As in the West African Senior Secondary Certificate (WASSCE), Ibrahim’s parents cannot afford to pay his university admission fee.

His mother, Hajaratu Osman, has invested her savings with one of Ghana’s collapsing banks and cannot afford to foot the bill.
