Confessed child serial killer Masten Wanjala has escaped from Jogoo Road Police Station in unclear circumstances.

Wanjala was expected in court on Wednesday, October 13, 2021, to answer for multiple murder charges pressed against him.

The 20-year-old hit the headlines after he confessed to the murder of 13 children aged 15 and under between 2014 and 2021.

Wanjala was arrested by detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) in July this year, after a trail of the disappearance of two children in Nairobi led sleuths to his whereabouts in Kitengela.

The suspect revealed to the detectives that he was behind the killing of Charles Opindo Bala,13, and Junior Mutuku Musyoki, 12, who disappeared on June 30 and July 7, 2021 respectively.

After his arrest, Wanjala led detectives to the scene of the crime where he had disposed of the bodies of the children in Lower Kabete.

During interrogation, the 20-year-old admitted to sucking the children's blood before he killed them.

"I'm sometimes normal and even play soccer with others well...people even know me to be mild-mannered," Wanjala stated.

Later on, in a fresh turn of events, Milimo claimed that he carried out the murders with the help of another man only identified as Isaac.

He was barely 16 when he first killed his first victim, Purity Maweu, a 12-year-old girl.
