Samuel Udoetuk-Wills

Samuel Udoetuk-Wills, the Nigerian suspect who was arrested in connection with the kidnapping of some three girls in the Western Region, has confessed to getting help from an officer of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service (CID) to escape from police custody.

Class91.3FM’s Western regional correspondent, Nana Kumi, reported on Monday, 11 January 2019 that the suspect told the court that he does not know the name of the officer but can identify him.

He also revealed that another individual named only as Kwesi provided him with oil which facilitated the cutting of the iron bars used to barricade the windows of the police cells where he was held.

The suspect said he does not know the whereabouts of the said Kwesi, too. The case was adjourned to February 18.

Udoetuk-Wills escaped from the custody of the Takoradi Metropolitan Police Command on 30 December 2018 but was recaptured in the wee hours of Friday, 4 January 2019 by three policemen in an abandoned building in the bush at Kanssawurodu, near Takoradi.

The suspect had been arrested on 22 December 2018 in connection with the alleged kidnapping and disappearance of a number of girls, for which a circuit court had placed him in police custody to reappear on 9 January 2019. He, however, mysteriously escaped from the cell with the help of guards.
