18-year old Tema convict tests positive for Coronavirus

An 18-year old boy who was convicted to 24 months in prison has tested positive for Coronavirus.

Nuhu Jaman was jailed by the court presided over by Her Worship Akosua Anokyewaa for stealing.

Authorities at the Mamobi Correcfional center refused to allow Jaman in due to him not being tested for the virus.

On May 1, 2020, a sample of the convict was taken by a COVID-19 team but the results turned out to be positive.

The District Police Command has since applied to the court for an order to release the convict prisoner to the District Health Directorate to be taken to an isolation centre.
