Six suspects escape cell during Nkoranza mayhem

Six suspects who were in police custody at the Nkoranza police division and headquarters managed to escape when angry youth of the area attacked the station over the death of 27-year-old businessman Albert Donkor, who was arrested and shot dead by the police on suspicion of being an armed robber.

The youth clashed with the police after the law enforcement agency, in a statement, described the late Albert Donkor as an armed robber.

The police said strenuous efforts are underway to recapture the six fugitives.

Also, as a result of the attack, six persons were injured and sent to the St Theresa’s Hospital, Nkoranza.

One of the injured persons died while receiving treatment and five others are currently on admission responding to treatment.

Two suspects have also, so far, been arrested in connection with the disturbances.
