Ghana Prisons Service Issues Wanted Person Notice for Escaped Chinese Inmate 

Authorities at the Nsawam Prison have issued a wanted person notice for a Chinese inmate who escaped while receiving medical care at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra.

Wang Xiao was arrested at Tema for stealing and was reportedly serving a one-year jail term at the Nsawam Maximum Security Prison.

Authorities say he feigned a dental health problem and was taken to the hospital last Wednesday, where he took off.
