The Offinso Divisional Police Command in the Ashanti Region has mounted a search for six suspects who escaped from police custody in the Offinso municipality on Tuesday dawn.

The suspects who were being kept in a cell at a Police station escaped through a hole they created in the cell.

According to the Divisional Commander, ACP Oduro Kwarteng, a 10-day ultimatum had been issued to the officers on duty to re-arrest the escapees or face sanctioning by the Police Administration.

The suspects were arrested for various offences and were being prepared for court before they managed to escape, starrfmonline reported.
