9 robbery with violence suspects escape from Thika police cells

Nine robbery with violence suspects on Wednesday night escaped from Thika Police Station cells after attacking the cell sentry.

It is alleged that one of the remandees called out the officer to be taken to the toilet at around 10pm. However, immediately the officer opened the cell door, the nine remandee prisoners in the cell attacked him and forcibly took away the keys to the main door to cells.

After opening the main door to the cells, they escaped through the roof and jumped into outer side police compound.

The officer immediately raised alarm and his colleagues started pursuing the suspects where one remandee was re-arrested, barely 500 meters from the station.

The search for the rest of the suspects is ongoing.

Meanwhile, the officer in question has since been detained in police cells to assist in investigations.

The escapees include:-

1. Livingstone Mwangi Njau

2. Francis Mwangi Matheri

3. Allan Njogu Mugai

4. Charles Nyaga Mitaru

5. John Mbugua Murege

6. Eric Ngigi Musige

7. Arthur Ndugu Kavemba

8. Bunton Kaguku Mbugua alias Bunju

9. Joseph Githu Nyanguthii (re-arrested)
