Police have launched a manhunt for two robbery with violence suspects who escaped from lawful custody at Kakamega police station.
Denis Indeche, 26 and Allan Kemoli, 29 escaped from the station’s cells under unclear circumstances Thursday morning, according to the duty officer.
Two police officers who were on duty when the duo escaped have since been placed in custody to assist with ongoing investigations.
Indeche had been arrested three days ago by sleuths drawn from the elite Crime Research & Intelligence Bureau, after being on the run for weeks.
He is wanted for numerous armed robberies in Western part of the country, including the attack on a senior DCI officer based in Kakamega, who escaped death narrowly after suffering life threatening injuries.
The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) is asking anyone with information that may lead to the arrest of the two suspects to contact their agents through 0800 722 203 or report the matter to the nearest police station.
