Three police officers linked to the escape of self-confessed serial killer Masten Millimo Wanjala have been arrested.

Reports indicate that the three officers; Police Inspector Philip Mbithi, Police Constables Boniface Mutuma, and Precious Mwende all of Jogoo Police Station are in custody for allegedly helping Wanjala escape. 

The self-confessed child serial killer Masten Wanjala escaped from Jogoo Road Police Station in unclear circumstances on Wednesday. 

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.
