Charles Danjimah, a 25-year-old unemployed from Assin Fosu who faked madness and escaped from the Twifo Praso Police Station was on Friday charged with escaping from lawful custody.

The court, presided over by Mr. Seth Bio-Nyamekye remanded the accused in prison custody for one month.

His plea was not taken and would re-appear on April 29, 2008.

Prosecuting, Chief Inspector George Okine told the court that sometime in December 2006, the accused was charged with threat of death.
