Mugota denied being a fugitive in a video that went viral, adding that he was on his way to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) to record a statement.

"We never exchanged phone numbers. I was in Nakuru at the time of his murder when I learned of his death. I found out about his death through the news "the suspect clarified
