Six policemen linked to the deaths of the two Embu brothers were arrested on yesterday evening and transferred to Nairobi.
Yesterday Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji ordered the arrest and detention of Nairobi police officers all involved in the deaths of two brothers in Kianjokoma, Embu region.
The officers were suspended earlier this year after the investigation into the deaths of Benson Njiru, 22, and Emmanuel Mutura, 19. The two were found dead earlier this month after being arrested by police.
DPP Haji issued the directives to Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai in a statement yesterday.
He said the move would prevent any disruption of evidence or intimidation of witnesses as the Independent Policing Oversight Authority (Ipoa) investigates the matter.
"For that reason and to look forward to the urgency of this matter, we expect to receive the results of all investigations into this matter within the time of the closure today," he said.
The DPP said its instructions were based on the initial investigation file conducted by the IAU.
