Manhunt as dangerous suspects escape cell

Namibian police are on a hunt for 11 prisoners who broke out of a police cell in the northeastern Zambezi region.

The escapees, awaiting trial for serious offenses, managed to cut through the roof of the Katima Mulilo police station and flee.

Items believed to have aided the escape, such as blades and makeshift ropes, were found in the cell.

Locals are cautioned as some of the escapees are considered dangerous, including one with a history of murder.

Three escapees have been recaptured, but the search continues.

The overcrowded cell, meant for 16 people, housed over 100 prisoners awaiting trial, and it’s currently under renovation.

Residents are urged to report any suspicious activities to the authorities.
