Two police officers, who escaped from custody after being arrested for their alleged role in an attack on a bullion van, have been re-arrested.

One of the officers, Lance Corporal Kusi Abrokwah, was arrested earlier in a bush around Nkawkaw and handed over to police authorities nearby.

The Police in the Eastern Region have confirmed the arrest of the second suspect after a regional security council (REGSEC) meeting Thursday. His name was however withheld.

Three suspects including two police officers were arrested Tuesday night for attempting to rob a GCB Bank bullion van in the Eastern Region.

However, the trio escaped when the vehicle transferring them stopped to refill at a fuel station in Nkawkaw.
