Prison escapee claims he was framed in murder case

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.”
