Three men suspected to have information on the murder of a man whose body was retrieved on Monday have been arrested by Thika police officers. Martin Maigua (24), Titus Karanja (26) and Michael Kamau were arrested in a rental house in Majengo after police investigating the incident got information about their whereabouts.The suspects are also alleged to have been involved in a violent robbery where a Thika businessman lost over Sh100,000 at a gunpoint on Monday among other items.

Thika OCPD Erastus Muthamia said the three are helping the police find the murderers as they are being interrogated. Police said that no concrete evidence was found in the room but they were sure to get the information on their operating dens in the course of investigations.

Muthamia, however, asked the area residents to come forward and record statements to help prosecute the suspects as he is sure the public have information on who attacks them in the area and they are unwilling to share with the police.

The suspects will remain in Thika police custody until the police have enough information to prosecute them.
