Kwabenya jail breakers

Two of the jail breakers in the Kwabenya police station attack, Emmanuel Kotey and Kofi Darko have been sentenced 68 months imprisonment.

The court gave Kofi Darko who was arrested three months ago an imprisonment term of 32 months and Emmanuel Kotey who was arrested twenty days ago 34 months.

They were among five persons who fled from the Kwabenya police station while in custody in Kwabenya when the attack took the place. The two convicts were sentenced after pleading guilty to charges of abetment and unlawful escaping from custody.
