Bomi Prison Yearns For Electricity

By David Seedee, LINA Bomi County Correspondent

TUBMANBURG, May 10 (LINA) - The Superintendent of the Tubmanburg Prison Compound, Clarence Dono, has expressed concern about the lack of electricity at the prison compound to provide security at night.

Superintendent Dono said since the construction of the Tubmanburg Prison Compound in 2008, it has not benefitted from electricity supply.

He said as a result, prison wardens are compelled to use flashlights at night to move about, which, he noted, is dangerous for the safety of the wardens and compound as a whole.               

According to the Liberia News Agency, Superintendent Dono made the disclosure in his April 2014 report to the Peace, Security and Rule of Law Pillar Meeting held on Thursday, May 8, at the Administrative Building in Tubmanburg.

Meanwhile, Mr. Dono has disclosed that all the 40 inmates presently in the prison compound are males.

He said of this number, two are Juveniles, while 12 have been convicted of rape, two of murder, one for kidnapping and one for involuntary sodomy.

Superintendent Dono has at the same time expressed concern that for the past two months, inmates of the Tubman Prison have not been receiving medication.
