A 27-year-old Nigerian drug lord reportedly escaped from jail, known as Chukuda Onyabu, and his 26-year-old Ghanaian counterpart, Emmanuel Osei, who were detained in Abokobi Police Cells near Adenta in the Greater Accra Region.
While awaiting the next court date, the suspects facing charges of possession of narcotic drugs and conspiracy to commit crimes and robbery, respectively, were held in prison custody.
However, on January 1, 2021, it was discovered that by using the iron rod used at the ventilation hole of the bathroom’s door to scrape a portion of the cell’s wall and break one of the bricks, the two alleged offenders had escaped from the cells.
Reportedly, they fled through the hole they made.
It was further discovered that attempts are underway to apprehend the suspects whose photos have been distributed in and beyond Accra to different police outlets.
