Ghana Police release photos of Denu jail breakers...
Police in the Volta region have released the photographs of the seven suspects who broke jail last week at Denu in the Ketu South District and made away with two AK 47 assault rifles and 25 rounds of ammunition.
The names of five of them were given as Albert Obina, Kwaku Azasu Atvoyo, Linus Ashietey, Stanley Wada Kabee and Tobechucku Asadu
The police have intensified the hunt for the suspects, who are said to be hardened criminals.
The pictures of the escapees have been given to Togolese security agencies to be circulated to all security INSTALLATIONS towards the re-arrest of the jail breakers.
In addition, the police officers who were on duty at the time have been tasked to produce the escapees within 10 days or face severe sanctions, the Deputy Volta Regional Police Commander, Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) William Akpese, told Daily Graphic.
The seven suspected criminals who were in lawful custody at the cell of the Denu Police Station for various offences were said to have overpowered two police officers who were on duty at the time of the jailbreak.
The all-male fugitives, whose identities have not yet been disclosed, allegedly made away with two AK47 rifles and 25 rounds of ammunition.
However, luck eluded six others who also attempted to escape, when they were overpowered by the police.
