Police Grab Aflao Jail Breakers

The jail breakers
Information reaching DAILY GUIDE indicates that three out of the seven suspected criminals who broke jail at the Denu police station near Aflao have been re-arrested.

The three were reportedly re-arrested yesterday at about 3:00 pm in the Agbozume and Klikor communities in the Ketu South Municipality of the Volta Region.

Sources at the Ketu South police station said the three were arrested with four others who were suspected to be hiding them in a shrine. The three criminals, together with their accomplices, are being interrogated by the police.

Sources close to the police in Aflao told DAILY GUIDE that the three suspects were arrested at a shrine in Agbozume. They said the suspects had gone there to fortify themselves with supernatural powers. The three were also suspected to have taken refuge at the shrine and being kept by the attendants and other accomplices – four in number.

Another source at the Aflao Government Hospital said Kwaku Azasu, one of the jail breakers, had been treated and discharged while the other two were receiving treatment under high police guard for receiving gunshot wounds.

The three are expected to be transferred to the regional police headquarters today for further action.

Meanwhile, residents have taken turns to besiege the Aflao and Denu Police Stations to verify the arrests, as many of them thought it was an ‘April Fool’ prank while others also praised the police for a good job done.

No Complacency
The Volta Regional Police Commander, DCOP Peterkin Yentumi Gyinae, who confirmed the arrest, told DAILY GUIDE that the suspects would be interrogated. He stressed that his men would not be complacent, but would improve their strategy to arrest the remaining four currently on the run.

The three suspects, who have been arrested are Stanley Wada alias Kay Bee, 30; Kwaku Azasu alias Voyo, 24 and George Dabla aka Black Jesus, 24. The remaining four at large are Linus Ashietey, 31; Edem Gomala, 25 and two Nigerians – Albert Obina, 21 and Tobe Chucku Asadu, 20.

The three were among seven suspected criminals who escaped from the Denu police cell last month while two officers were on duty.

Residents, led by some youth, went on rampage and blocked the main Aflao-Accra highway in protest against the jail break. According to them, their lives were in danger as some of them assisted in the arrest of some of the escaped robbers. The robbers had also taken with them two AK 47 assault rifles and over 20 rounds of cartridges.
