Masten Wanjala narrates how he escaped police cells

A self-confessed child killer Masten Wanjala Milimo, on Friday narrated how he escaped the police cell before he was brutally murdered in Bungoma home area.

Wanjala told the mob that he posed as a petty offender and handed officers some money before walking out on Tuesday night.

The source of the money, however, remains unclear

Police who talked to the mob said Wanjala then hiked a lift on a lorry to Bungoma where he joined villagers.

“He however did not know they did not want him there,” the police said.

It emerged Wanjala who had been at the station for close to a month escaped after police arrested tens of suspects for reportedly flouting Covid-19 pandemic rules and mixed them with those who were in custody.

It was until Wednesday morning that officers who were taking over realized he was missing.

Wanjala, 25, escaped from Jogoo Road police station cells as remandees and others were being separated from the general population.
