The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) has released the pictures of six men suspected to members of a gang behind mysterious killings in Nakuru City.
In a statement issued in Nairobi on Friday, 1st July, the DCI said that it had completed the necessary forensic examination and documentation of the six.
The suspects were arrested by detectives from the elite Crime Research and Intelligence Bureau supported by their Special Service Unit counterparts.
According to the detectives, five of the six suspects were arrested on Friday morning in a mud-walled house where they were hiding after the arrest of the alleged mastermind, Evans Michori Kebwaro.
“Upon the arrest of Evans Michori Kebwaro, in Keroka Kisii County, the detectives raided a house in Nakuru’s Kivumbini area at 3am and pounced on Kebwaro’s five alleged accomplices who had fallen into deep slumber,” said the DCI.
“The five were Julius Otieno, 27, Josphat Simiyu, 24, Dennis Nmbolo 25, Isaac Kinyanjui, 18, and Makhoha Wanjala, 25.”
The DCI detectives gained access to the room through the roof and the window, leaving the five with nowhere to run.
“The battle hardened detectives gained access to the room from the roof, the door and window simultaneously, giving the thugs the biggest shock of their lives. With nowhere to run, the five surrendered into the good hands of our agents, as they became the latest guests of the State,” DCI stated.
The six will soon be arraigned.
