Ex-convict and former Stars of the Future runner-up, Ramzy Amui has revealed that the shocking death of EXOPA boss and model Ibrahim Sima was avoidable.
In an interview with Hitz FM’s Ibrahim Ben-Bako, Amui revealed that the model's death was as a result of negligence by the prison guards at the Nsawam Maximum Security Prison.
“We were in the same block. He was in Cell 3 and I was in Cell 5. We went to the pitch to play football and he wanted to score a goal. The [goal] keeper also wanted to hit the ball.
“Unfortunately, he hit his rib. He had one broken rib but did not know. Even though he felt the pain, he played the game till the end. In the evening when he was going to pray, blood oozed from his nose as he bowed down and was rushed to the infirmary,” he narrated.
Amui explained further that the conditions under which prisoners live in Ghana prisons are not pro-life and those who unfortunately fall sick while in prison are likely to die.
In the case of Mr. Sima, there was no doctor to see to his injury, forcing him to go to bed in pain.
“They said there was no car or ambulance to take him to the hospital, meanwhile there were officers in the prison yard who had private cars of their own,” he said.
Ibrahim Sima died on Thursday, December 4, 2014 to the shock of many, while serving a 15-year jail term for dealing in narcotics.
