Self-confessed serial child killer Masten Wanjala is out of police custody through an escape.
According to a statement by the police, Wanjala, who cooling his heels at Jogoo Road police post, might have slipped from the cells last evening.
This morning, the officer on duty alerted his seniors after noticing that the murder suspect was missing.
“This was noticed when they were taking over the report office and cell sentry duties. They informed the D/ocs who was in the report office minuting cases in the OB,” reads the report.
“The deputy OCS informed the OCPD Buruburu and raised alarm and the area was combed inorder to re arrest the prisoner,” the statement read.
