The two, Prince Osei and Atta Kwadwo were convicted on their own plea of unlawful escaping from custody and abetment.
According to the presiding judge, Aboagye Tando the maximum sentence should have been 36 months but he gave the duo the jail term because they didn’t waste the court’s time and also to send strong signal so that such occurrence should not be encouraged.
