The five, who were under investigation for various degrees of crimes including armed robbery managed to escape through the ceiling of a toilet in the facility.

Confirming the incident, Deputy Public Relations Officer of the Accra Regional Police Command, Inspector Kwabena Danso called on the general public to assist them to re-arrest the suspects.

“I can confirm to you that five prisoners have escaped from police cells at Ofankor. They managed to create a hole through the ceiling and escaped from custody. There is one armed robbery remand prisoner and the remaining four are involved in killing. We’ve put measures in place. We have intensified police patrols, motor bike patrols and we have also activated our intelligence gathering across the country,” he told Accra-based Citi FM.

Meanwhile, the police officers who were on duty have been given some days to ensure that the escapees are recaptured or face sanctions.
