POLICE IN Zenu/Atadeka are collaborating with their colleagues under the Tema Region to manhunt twelve remand prisoners who escaped from cells on Easter Day.
The escapees have been named by the police as Musah Ali, Richard Romeo, Basit Sulemana, Sumaila Karim, Amish Akorli, Musah Ibrahim, Abu Sadique, Mubarak Seiti, Ibrahim Adams, Ibrahim Fuseini, Aziz Fuseini and Sulemana Ibrahim.
However, police have managed to arrest three out of the twelve who escaped after pouring hot porridge on the face of one of the policemen at the station.
Information available to DAILY GUIDE indicates that the incident occurred on Sunday morning at about 6:30 am when a police counter officer sergeant attempted to put a fresh suspect in the male cells.
One of the inmates, who was given porridge for breakfast, allegedly poured the hot food on the face of the policeman.
The policeman was blinded by the porridge within seconds, and the inmates in custody seized the opportunity to push the metal door open and started escaping.
Police said they are making frantic effort to arrest the remaining escapees.
