Two jailed for escaping from lawful custody

The Agona Swedru Magistrate’s Court has sentenced two prisoners who escaped from lawful custody to 24 months imprisonment each.

Kwesi Delad 27 and Isaac Marful 21, both unemployed, pleaded guilty to the charge of escaping from lawful custody and the court presided over by Mr Isaac Apeatu sentenced them on their own plea.

The two, together with two others Jallo Yussifu, 38 and Sumaila Ibrahim 26, now at large, scaled the walls of the Agona Swedru police station after breaking the main padlocks to the cells.

Two police officers, Corporal Rebecca Frempong and Justice Kweku Morfia who were on duty at the time were given 10 days ultimatum as per the rules and regulations of Ghana Police Service to re-arrest the escapees or face the consequences.

He said the police had mounted an intensive search for the arrest of the two others.
