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.
