One of the eight prisoners who was involved in yesterday’s daring jailbreak from the Remand Section of the Golden Grove Prison in Arouca is allegedly calling on Police Commissioner Gary Griffith and Director of Public Prosecution Roger Gaspard to look into his case, saying he was set up.
Olatungi Denbow, who was still at large up to last night, claims he has been incarcerated for the past three years on false murder charges laid against him by corrupt police officers and supported by a “professional paid state witness.”
Even while law enforcement officers were hot on his trail and those of the seven other men yesterday, Denbow purportedly managed to circulate a statement via social media, supposedly to provide a reason for his decision to break out of jail.
“This witness gave lying account of seeing a double murder that had me and four others doing free jail time ...all evidence says differently to the evidence given by the investigating officers. All matters she is involved in she issued a statement of fear as her reason for not showing up in low court. Yet still my case was sent, I’m the high court for no justifiable reason. “
Urging Griffith and Gaspard to step in to fully probe his case, he added, “For the sake of proper justice to prevail me and the other party involved will be ready to serve ourselves to the state as soon as they are seriously ready and I also hope that this false witness and her alliance feel the full brunt of the law for having close to 10 human males in jail on false utterance.”
He ended with: “Yours truly Olatungi Denbow, now wanted by the state for seeking justice.”
