Jail breaker re-arrested in Kumasi after 4 years

Police at the Airport District Command in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region have recaptured a fugitive, who was amongst some inmates who escaped from lawful custody some four years ago.

The escapee, 20-year-old Alex Boakye Ansah, was recaptured when the Airport Patrol Team spotted him at Dichemso, a suburb of the Kumasi Metropolis.

The Airport District Commander, Superintendent Iddrisu Abdulai, told Citi News the suspect would soon be put before the court.

“We’ll still prosecute him for the offense that he committed prior to his escape, and he has actually escaped from lawful custody so that one too is a count; a fresh charge that will be leveled against him. He is being prepared for court,” he said.

He added that, “His escape led to the reduction of the rank of about two of my personnel, so we think that it is not a case that we should joke with. We are going to take it seriously but allow the law take its course.”

According to the Police, the suspect claims one of his colleague escapees, Surat Salim, died on his way to Libya, but he has no knowledge on the whereabouts of the other escapee, Jones Anane Akpaloo.

The three broke through the wooden ceiling of the Asawase police station cell at about 12 midnight on 17th August 2014, where they were being kept, pending their trial for various criminal offenses.
