Jail Breaker Re-Arrested With 18-Yr-Old Girlfriend

A 20-year-old armed robber who escaped from the grips of the Tema Fishing Harbour Police, have been re-arrested. Eliasu Mohammed, according to the Deputy Public Relations Officer of the Tema Regional Police Command, was re-arrested on Wednesday Morning at Okponglo, a suburb of Accra after he escaped along with two others on Saturday. Mohammed, a Malian, was re-arrested together with his 18-year-old final-year senior high school student lover who was allegedly assisting him in his hideout. He had earlier been arrested together with two of his colleagues following a misunderstanding over the sharing of the booty after they had robbed an expatriate of huge sums of money. Speaking in an interview on Wednesday on Peace FM, Corporal Joseph Barabu indicated that Eliasu had a large quantity of ammunitions with him when he was re-arrested. The two other escapees, Daniel Kumi, a 20 year old mechanic apprentice and Ebenezer Nyagbedzi, a 19 year old tailor, are still at large. Corporal Barabu narrated that after news broke that the three had escaped, the Accra police command was on the lookout and even informed the public to assist in re-arresting the culprits. “We requested for information from the public and they assisted us in re-arresting him. Crime fighting is not for one person but collective. We know the public will still help us to arrest the other escapees. We are also gathering intelligence report… Eliasu is currently in our custody at the regional headquarters…” he said.
