Police at the Tema Fishing Harbour have been given ten days to produce three suspects who escaped from custody over the weekend, Radio XYZ has reported.

The suspects, according to report, escaped Saturday night through the roof of the cell.

Ebenezer Nyagbedzi, 19, Eliasu Mohammed and Daniel Kwame-Kumi both 20-year-olds were in police custody for various offences.

They escaped after they had been brought back from the police hospital where they had initially feigned illness.

Acting Director of the Police Public Affairs, DSP Cephas Arthur in an interview with XYZ News said the police have mounted a search for the suspects.
