Perhaps, one of the best ways to avoid being caught in Nigeria where they have escaped from prison is to cross the border.
That was almost going to happen until Police authorities in Ghana caught them. Nine inmates alleged to have broken jail have been arrested while fleeing to Ghana by the Ghanaian Police force at Ada Foah.
While they were able to pass through the Nigerian border, Ghanaian police was no match for their cunnings as Ada Divisional Police Commander, Chief Superintendent, Francis Somian, explained that they got a tip-off that led them to Clinic Junction Lorry Station where the arrest was made on Monday.
Officials claimed that the tip-off revealed that suspects believed to be fugitive jailbreakers from Nigeria entered the country via ferry, across River Volta into Ada Foah where they intended to continue their journey to Accra via commercial bus.
3news Ghana reported that the suspects have been identified as Emmanuel Obinnah Chiedozie – 27, Steve Eyenuku – 33, Enebeli Lucky – 29, Yommi Usmah – 29, Keli Ekureni -33, Freedom Yusuf – 25, Obi Onuora – 38, Patrick Chanar – 47, and Bless Eyenuku -25.
