How Police officers 'Helped' The Serial Killer Masten Wanjala to Escape

Reports given indicates that the late Wanjala took the advantage of Covid-19 curfew offenders who had been arrested and locked in the same cell with him on that fateful night.

According to the report, Wanjala found room to escape after the curfew offenders were asked to pay money in order to secure their freedom.

Wanjala used the opportunity, pretending to be one of the offenders. He lined up as a curfew offender and paid the required amount by the police officers thereby securing his freedom. However, reports indicate that no arrest records were made for the curfew offenders that were arrested and released that night.

It is suspected that after Wanjala escaped from the cell, he took a ride on a trailer to Bungoma, where he was killed by a mob on the following day.

The amount he paid the police officers

It was not specified on the amount that Wanjala paid the officers. This is because there were no records of the curfew offenders who were claimed to have been arrested. This is a clear form of corruption. Otherwise, a record would have been left behind.
