Prisons in many countries of the world are overcrowded and congested, have decaying infrastructure, lack hygiene and adequate health facilities, and, as such, prisoner’s health and life are in danger. An attempt to analyze the rights of inmates in Kaura Namoda Satalite prison is the major objective. Moreover, survey research was used for the purpose of the study which adopts both quantitative and qualitative methods of research. It samples the entire population in the prison (80 respondents) and makes use of questionnaire and interview methods for data collection. The findings of this shows that inmates rights on the average are respected and do not suffer wide range of violation as established by other researchers, for example it was gathered that about 63(78.8%) respondents said they are not faced with this problem, only 17(21.3%) said they are confronted with rights violation. So this reveal that most of the inmates enjoy certain rights, also some inmates statements made research understand that in most cases their rights are often violated with reason, either to protect others from being injured by an inmate’s or to prevent future occurrence of particular act. The institution of prison is set up for the purpose of rehabilitating inmates. Even though this goal is not met, there is the need for the government to review and reform the rules which guide the prison to conform to the international standard.
