The arrested persons are said to be returning from Nkawkaw in the Eastern Region where they said the Covid-19 has affected business in the area.
District Chief Executive (DCE) of Kadjebi, Maxwell Asiedu blamed poor security for the ability for the 6 persons to escape.
“There was only one guard, this four-bedroom is a guest house…the police on duty said he also went out to buy credit card before he came they were not there.”
He said the District Security Council have agreed to search for them.
“The following day DISEC met and deliberated on it, we have agreed that we are going to look for them. The way it looks it seems they are still around because all their belongings are still there, their chargers, slippers and other things. It means that they are still around only that maybe somebody has camped them in their room so we searching seriously for them.”
