Police are looking for two robbery with violence suspects who escaped from lawful custody at Kakamega police station.
According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), Denis Indeche, 26, and Allan Kemoli, 29, escaped from the station’s cells under unclear circumstances yesterday morning, as reported by the duty officer.
Indeche had been arrested 3 days ago by sleuths from the elite Crime Research & Intelligence Bureau, after being on the run for weeks.
“He is wanted for numerous armed robberies in Western Kenya, including the attack on a senior DCI officer based in Kakamega, who was lucky to escape death, with life-threatening injuries,” the DCI said.
Meanwhile, two police officers who were on duty when the duo escaped have since been placed in custody to assist with investigations.
“Should you have any information that may lead to the arrest of the two suspects, please dial 0800 722 203 to speak to our agents, or report to any police station near you,” the DCI pleaded.
