Being a developing country with a poor economy is not an excuse for torture, sexual abuse and no dignified care. GRTS video showing Mile II Central Prisons has been described as the most abusive and dangerous prison facility witnessed anywhere in Africa. But what do we know about the Mile 5 Sanatorium at “Wenture” and the Campama psychiatric hospital?
Any person with or without a disability detained in these facilities faces immediate risk to his or her life, health and personal integrity as well as risk of inhuman and degrading treatment or torture. Believed to be one of the most haunted spot, Campama and Mile 5(Wenture) could be the basis for the next Stephen King novel, based on its checkered history.
According local lore, patients die mysterious death, one after another. There are rumors of doctors going insane, rivaling their patients.
Along with severer overcrowding. Profound abuse abounded; people locked in cages, lobotomized with icepick, chained to things. And the combination led to deaths and palpable air of suffering.
