Obuasi jail break: Police recapture run-away inmate

Prison authorities in Obuasi have recaptured an inmate who broke jail Friday morning.

Thirty-two year old Yaw Saboku who is serving a 12-month sentence escaped when he and other inmates were cleaning junior prison wardens’ quarters.

The clean-up exercise was being supervised by an officer whose identity is being withheld.

It took police to re-arrest Saboku at the Dunkwaw-on-Offin barrier in the Central Region, ten hours after he broke jail.

He is described as a known and familiar inmate because he is in prison for the third time for stealing.

Staff Officer of the Obuasi Prisons, F.W.K Dapaah tells Nhyira FM he had managed to change his prison uniform for new clothes before his re-arrest in an Obuasi-Dunkwaw bound bus.

Authorities earlier found his uniforms on a field in Obuasi Township.

Luck eluded Soboku when he was apprehended at the Dunkwaw Barrier by police officers who had been alerted by prison authorities.

It is not clear if the inmate who hails from Dunkwaw-on-Offin would be made to face the law.
