Samuel Udoetuk Wills, the main accused person behind the kidnapping of the three Takoradi girls, has been sentenced to 18 months in prison for jailbreak.

The Takoradi Market Circle Court handed him the jail sentence on Monday.

Udoetuk Wills after an earlier arrest on suspicion of the kidnapping broke jail in December 2018.

He was however re-arrested on January 3, 2019 and was charged with escaping from lawful custody and destroying state property.


Udoetik Wills was sent to court on December 24, 2018, on charges of kidnapping and was remanded in police custody.

He escaped through one of the ventilation windows of the cell in which he was being kept at about 6.25 p.m. on December 30 2018, having used a hacksaw blade to cut the iron rods used to secure the windows.

On January 3, 2019, the police re-arrested him in an uncompleted building at Kansawurodo, a suburb of Sekondi/Takoradi.

At the spot where he was re-arrested, the police found a dress, headgear and a pair of rubber slippers, which one of the kidnapped victims wore on the day she went missing.
