Just In: Self-Proclaimed Children Serial Killer Masten Wanjala Killed by Mob in Bungoma

Reports just in state that self proclaimed children serial killer Masten Mulimu Wanjala has been found dead after he was lynched by members of the public on Thursday evening.

According to a report by Citizen TV, Wanjala was identified by the locals playing soccer at his home town, Kabuchai in Bungoma County on Thursday, before they descended on him.

Wanjala was reported to escape from Jogoo Road Police Station on Wednesday, the same day he was expected to take a formal plea over the murder of 13 minors across Bungoma, Machakos and Nairobi Counties.

The area Chief Boniface Ndiera confirmed the incidence on Friday morning.

Wanjala came to the limelight on July this year after he confessed over the killings.

So far, three of the police officers based in Jogoo Road Police Station have been arrested, and will be detained for 14 days as more investigations take place.

The family of Wanjala yesterday gave the government a period of two days to reveal the whereabouts of their son, after the court was told that he took advantage of blackout to escape from the cell.
