The Police Service has denied reports that the seven suspected criminals who escaped from cells after their gang invaded the Kwabenya Police station Sunday have handed themselves over.

Recipients of this false news must disregard.

“The Command strongly suspect this information is intended to divert the attention of the public from the ongoing pursuit. Police will caution the general public against channeling unverified information on the social media space. A search for the escapees continue unabated and credible information on the subject matter is still welcomed on Police hotlines 191, MTN/VODAFONE Toll Free 18555, 0302773695, 0302 787373?.
