Three escape from remand jail. Police manages to recapture one

The police have recaptured one of the three remand prisoners, who escaped from police cells, where they were being held.

Azumah, and two others, Sena Torme and Yakubu Abdulla, broke jail, yesterday (Sunday, November 21), at Dabala, in the South Tongu District of the Volta Region.

They created a hole in the wall of the cell, where they were being kept, squeezed themselves through and fled.

Azumah was caught at Vekon, in Sogakope, and has been taken back into police custody.

Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Effia Tenge, Director of Police Public Affairs, Volta Regional Police Command, has confirmed the re-arrest of one of the jail breakers. She said this was based upon a tip off.

Azumah is standing trial together with Sena Torme for murder, and they have been remanded into police custody.

The other escaped prisoner, Yakubu Abdulla, has been sentenced to 18 years imprisonment, and he was awaiting his COVID-19 test results, to begin his jail term.

DSP Effia Tenge said the police have launched a massive manhunt to re-capture the two escaped remand prisoners.

The three managed to create a hole in the wall of the cell and escaped through it in the night. DSP Effia Tenge, called for the people to assist the police with information to re-arrest the two run-away remand prisoners. They should volunteer information.

Separately, five students of the Konongo Odumase Senior High School (SHS), arrested over the killing of a first-year student of the school, have for the third time, been remanded by the Konongo District Court.

The court, presided over by Madam Joyce Bamfo, ordered that they should make their next appearance on, Monday, November 29. The students are said to have gone bullying the first-year students.

Sam’un Larhan, the deceased, was said to have intervened to save one of the students from being bullied and that angered one of the second-year students. In his fit of anger, the year-two student, reportedly drew a knife he had hidden on himself and stabbed Sam’un Larhan in the left lower rib.

He bled profusely and was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital, where he had been rushed for medical attention.

The five students are being held at a juvenile cell at Juaso, the Asante Akim South Municipal Capital.
