Another cell break in Ashanti region; two suspects escape


Two suspects in Police custody at Ahafo Ano North in the Ashanti region are reported to have escaped.

According to information gathered by Starr News, the suspects managed to smuggle some metal weapons into the cells and systematically cut the iron bars to make their getaway.

The Police in the region have launched a manhunt to re-arrest the suspects.

Two Police officers on duty are currently being interrogated by the Regional Security Council to establish how the suspects escaped from Police custody.

This is the second cell break in less than a month after seven suspects also broke cell in Denu in the Volta region.

In February this year, some inmates of the Kumasi Central prisons attempted to escape but the Police quickly foiled the jailbreak.

One inmate was confirmed dead following a scuffle between some of the inmates and security personnel during the attempted jailbreak.

The latest cell break comes after a security Analyst Emmanuel Sowatey last week predicted more prisoner escapes from police cells in the coming months.
