DCI Arrest Three Officers Over Escape Of Serial Killer

Three officers at Jogoo Road Police Station in Nairobi have been arrested in relation to the escape of 20-year-old serial killer Masten Wanjala from police custody.

A source told Viral Tea that the officers were arrested under orders from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) boss George Kinoti.

The arrests come moments after former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko offered a Ksh200,000 cash reward to anyone who will provide information leading to the rearrest of the serial killer.

Sonko took to his social media accounts on Wednesday, October 13 to express his disappointment after learning that Wanjala had escaped from custody at the Jogoo Road Police Station in Nairobi, where he was being held.

He was expected to appear at the Makadara Law Courts on Wednesday, October 13 to answer to 13 counts of murder. It remains unclear as to how Wanjala was able to slither away from the cells.

Kamukunji Member of Parliament Yusuf Hassan also received the news with shock, noting that the police should account for what happened that led to Wanjala's disappearance.

He demanded Inspector General of Police Hilary Mutyambai, the National Police Service (NPS) and the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) to ensure that he is brought to book once again.

"I’m shocked to hear this serial killer has escaped. This is unacceptable. This guy poses a real threat to our children. @IG_NPS, @NPSC_KE, @DCI_Kenya must ensure that he’s taken off our streets quickly and placed behind bars," he urged.

The calls by Hassan and Sonko to the police come amidst resurrected fears that he could go on his killing spree once again, targeting children.

Wanjala was arrested by the DCI on Wednesday, July 14 after he confessed to kidnapping and killing two children Charles Opindo Bala, 13, and Junior Mutuku Musyoki, 12, who disappeared on Wednesday, June 30 and Wednesday, July 7 respectively in Shauri Moyo, Nairobi.
