The Brong Ahafo Regional Police Command has re-arrested the suspected armed robber who escaped on Thursday, May 5 from the Sunyani Regional Hospital.
Kwaku Yeboah, 21 years old was receiving treatment under a 24-hour guard but mysteriously escaped prompting the Regional Police Administration to issue a 10-day ultimatum to the police officer on duty to find the escaped robber.
