These People escaped Prison in Nigeria only to be arrested in Ghana

The Ada District Police Command detained nine Nigerians accused of being escaped prison breakers from the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Last Sunday at Ada Foah, they were captured. Nine are Emmanuel Obinnah Chiedozie, Enebeli Lucky, Kelli Ekureni, Freedom Yusuf, Obi Onuora, Patrick Chanar Bless Eyenuku, Emmanuel Obinnah Chiedozie and Steve Eyenuku.

The nine crossed the Volta to Ada Foah in the greater Accra region and, when they were apprehended, were on their way to Accra. At the Ada Foah truck stop, they were seized. Passports, ID cards, personal belongings contained items. Around 1,844 prisoners escaped on 5 April in the south-eastern region of Nigeria, Owerri, the capital of Imo States.

That happened when heavily armed men stormed the jail. Reports showed that, after explosions of the administrative building, armed men with rocket propelled grenades and machine guns obtained entry to the jail. In addition to releasing the hostages, the assailants have left a trail of devastation, including by the burning of cars parked in custody.

A few days after the prison break, the Ghana Immigration Service released an order at the entry points of the nation to all of its commanders and men to be vigilant and avoid all attempts by the prison breakers to gain entry. A Senior Administrative Officer, Laud Kwesi Afrifa, signed the Directive.
