28-year-old Samuel Udoetuk Wills; the Nigerian kidnapper

Seven police officers have been given 10 days to produce the suspected Nigerian kidnapper who broke cell at the Takoradi police station, a police source has disclosed to ghanagong.com.

Though the source could not confirm or deny their interdiction, the Western Regional police command is awaiting a further directive from the office of the Inspector General of Police.

The suspect, 28-year-old Samuel Udoetuk Wills, escaped from his cell Sunday, December 30 at the Takoradi Police Station at around 4:30 in the evening. He is believed to have cut the iron rods barricading his cell window with an equipment yet to be identified.

Police say the suspect is said to be behind the recent kidnapping of three teenage girls around the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis in the Western Region.

Families of the victims are however unhappy with the turn of events.

Sister of one of the victims in an interview said, “My sister was kidnapped on 4th December, 2018. The Police were able to arrest the suspect, but we’ve been told that one of the police officers allowed the suspect to escape. So as at now, we don’t know where my sister is.”

“I learnt there were two police officers on duty that night. If you are on duty and someone uses a chainsaw to break the cell, how did the suspect get that machine? So we assume it was an insider who helped the suspect to escape. The police officers on duty must be punished because this is a criminal case,” she added.
