"Seven remand prisoners in the Denu cells in the Ketu South "
Seven remand prisoners in the Denu cells in the Ketu South Municipality in the Volta Region have escaped, Friday dawn.
The prisoners said to have committed various offences escaped with 2 AK 47 rifles and 50 rounds of amunition.
Volta Region Police Commander King Yentumi Gyinai confirmed the cell break in an interview with Joy FM's Super Morning Show host Kojo Yankson.
"This dawn our men were on duty at the charge office and while on their normal duties the prisoners in the cells managed to overpower them and took away two rifles.
"Seven of them managed to escape but the rest were prevented from escaping.
'We have sent word all around; all barriers; all borders. We are also searching every nook and cranny to see if we can get them back," he said.
DCOP Gyinai said residents must report anybody they think looks suspicious to the police
