The rest of the remandees pleaded with the cell sentry to accompany their accomplice to the lavatory, before he soiled the entire cell. 

When the cell sentry opened the cell, the nine escapees descended on him with blows and kicks, before forcibly taking away keys to the main door leading to the cells. 

“How 8 of the 9 capital offenders walked to freedom in a highly guarded facility, is what detectives based in Thika are currently trying to establish, not ruling out the possibility of an inside job.” DCI said

“Livingstone Njau, Francis Matheri, Allan Mugai, Charles Mitaru, John Murege, Eric Ngigi, Arthur Kayemba and Bunton Mbugua all escaped in the 10pm incident. The 9th prisoner Joseph Nyaguthii, was however rearrested by traffic standby personnel, approximately 500 metres from the station, as the rest escaped under the cover of darkness.” 

The capital offenders all with pending robbery with violence were being held at the station from the Industrial Area GK prison, pending court appearance. 

Meawhile, the cell sentry who was attacked by the fleeing thugs is currently in custody at the same police station, assisting detectives with investigations.

The police have urged members of the public  who have any information that may lead to the arrest of the suspects, to report through the DCI anonymous toll free hotline, 0800 722 203.
