Calm has returned to the Nsawam Medium Security Prison following a misunderstanding among inmates Saturday morning.
Life came to a standstill at the prison when a fight between two inmates disrupted activities at the facility as visitors were held outside the gates of the prison for hours.
Chief Public Relations Officer of the Prison Service, ASP Courage Atsem told Joy News the scuffle broke when a Muslim inmate flouted instructions by his senior who is a Christian inmate but stressed that the situation has been brought under control.
He added that the two will be punished according to rules governing the behaviour of prisoners.
