The Offinso Police in the Ashanti region have arrested one of the six suspects who escaped from police custody at the Abofour police station on Tuesday dawn.
The suspects who were being kept in a cell at a Police station escaped through a hole they created in the cell which is a mud house. They had been arrested for various offences and were being prepared for court before they managed to escape.
The Offinso Divisional Police Commander, ACP Oduro Kwarteng tells Kasapa News that the arrested suspect is helping the police arrest the other runaway inmates. He was confident that the other five will be arrested soon as Police intensify a manhunt for them.
He said a 10-day ultimatum has been issued to the officers on duty to re-arrest the escapees or face sanctioning by the Police Administration.
