Wounded Armed Robber Escapes From Hospital, Under Police Watch

by on May 9, 2016
An injured armed robber is currently one of the most wanted men in Ghana after his daring escape from a heavily guarded hospital in Sunyani, Ghana. 21-year old suspected armed robber, Kwaku Yeboah, who was under a 24-hour guard at the Sunyani Regional Hospital managed to outwit a security guard and escape.

Yeboah was arrested for robbing a trader, Madam Kate Sam Wilson at gunpoint at Ohene Djan, a suburb of Abesim, near Sunyani on May 2, 2016. Yeboah and his accomplice who is currently at large,came to the lady’s shop with a motorcycle. They parked the bike a few meters away from the lady’s shop, before attacking and taking her handbag containing GH2,500 and other items at about 7.30pm that day.

Luck ran out on Yeboah when an 18-year old boy who witnessed the robbery laid ambush near the motorbike and attacked Yeboah with a big stone.

Yeboah, who was riding the motorbike and wielding a gun, fell off the bike. Yeboah’s accomplice immediately took to his heels while Yeboah started struggling with the boy. A mob quickly gathered and Yeboah would have been lynched if not for the police’s timely intervention. The criminal was rushed to Sunyani Regional Hospital because of the severity of the injuries he sustained as a result of the assault and was placed under a 24-hour guard.His jaw was broken.

He escaped on Thursday by tricking the police constable guarding his hospital room. The victim, Kate Wilson, on learning of yeboah’s escape, expressed fear and serious concern over her life and business. The Brong Ahafo Regional Police Command has given the police constable that guarded Yeboah a 10 day ultimatum to find him or face the full wrath of the rules and regulations of the Ghana police service.

    never trust ghana police. The same police that arrested the sms fraudsters who were exploiting people via sms, the same police has manipulated those cases, took advantage, collected huge somes of money from them and provided them with ways of escape. Those criminal are walking free now case closed and they have deviced better means of doing it with the help of the police as they pay their dues to the police. None of them was ever sent to prison. How shld anyone good thinker ever trust our police. How can they ask the criminals to pay and get their file removed?
