A 23-year-old rape suspect, Okpara Miracle, in Awka, Anambra State, on Wednesday escaped from a Magistrates’ Court through the window.

Mr. Miracle of Awkuzu in Oyi Local Government Area of Anambra allegedly broke loose when his trial was about to start and his handcuff was removed.

He allegedly destroyed the window louvres and escaped into the nearby bush.

Miracle was arrested for alleged kidnapping, rape and cultism and was about to be arraigned for kidnapping a minor, whom he kept in an uncompleted building in Awka for several days while having carnal knowledge of her.

Awana Amba, told NAN that the absence of protectors on the windows made it possible for the suspect to escape.

“The accused was brought to the court in handcuff, but the handcuff was later unlocked with the hope that he will be of good behaviour before the unexpected happened,” Amba said.

The Magistrate N.A. Onunkwo, mandated the police to intensify search for the suspect to be brought to book.

    This must have been planned with the Police. Why will anyone be sorry that they end up being killed at the twilight of their retirement?
