Suspected Nigerian kidnapper, Sam Udoetuk Wills, currently under investigation for allegedly kidnapping three girls in the Western Region has told a Takoradi District Court that aside from his two friends and an officer of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) helped him to escape from police custody.

Wills escaped from lawful custody at the Takoradi Central Police Command on December 30, 2018 after he was arrested for allegedly kidnapping some girls.

He was later re-arrested in the Eastern Region.

The suspect told the Takoradi District court that he would be able to identify the CID officer who aided his escape if he is presented in a parade.

He said his friends whose name he gave as Kwesi and John also aided his escape.

The Presiding Judge, Michael Kudjo Ampadu did not object to the prosecutor’s argument that it will be difficult to identify the said CID officer, but rather adjourned the case to 18th February 2019 to allow suspect Wills to bring his witness, Kwesi who is currently on the run.

Suspect Wills beside being investigated for the three kidnapped girls is facing three counts of charges including escape from lawful custody, destroying public property and resisting rearrest.
