Mr Mutembei was put on the spot after Musharaf Abdallah Akhulunga alias Shukri, Mohamed Ali Abikar and Joseph Juma Odhiambo alias Yusuf went missing from the most guarded prison in the country, the Kami Maximum Prison.
Mutembei was immediately arrested by ATPU officers, only for the three terrorists to be re-arrested later.
