Masten Wanjala before a court in Makadara during a previous hearing.
Three police officers who were on duty when the confessed serial killer Masten Wanjala escaped from custody were brought to court in Milimani on Thursday.
In an affidavit from Chief Inspector Wanga Masake, the state says the three officers were arrested on October 13 on suspicion of committing an offense of helping a prisoner escape contrary to the article. 124 of the Criminal Code.
Masake said the three men neglected to prevent Wanjala's escape - a duty they were required to perform under the National Police Service Act.
"The offense took place on the night of October 12-13 and the escapee was not arrested again," the affidavit states.
He further said that preliminary investigations revealed that the three people neglected and helped the suspect to escape.
Lawyer Danstan Omari, representing the three cops, said he would oppose the request for his clients to be arrested.
