The penis of an inmate at the Ankaful prison in the Central region has been chopped off allegedly attempting to sodomise his colleague.
According to a news report by Onua FM, one of the gay inmates got angry with a colleague who refused him sex, leading to the slashing of the penis with a razor blade.
The sources said prison officers heard a loud noise coming from one of the prison blocks. When the wardens rushed to the place, they found the victim in a pool of blood with his penis almost chopped off.
The victim was rushed to the Interberton Hospital in Cape Coast for an operation after he was given a first aid treatment at the infirmary of the prison.
Meanwhile, the Police Criminal Investigations Department has begun investigations into the matter. Sources say the victim has been caught on several occasions forcing his way to sodomise other inmates.
