Smelling an opportunity, Wanjala, who had spent close to a month at the police station, also lined up as a curfew offender and paid an unspecified amount hence securing his freedom.
It was also revealed that no arrest records were made for the curfew offenders that were arrested and released that night.Wanjala is later suspected to have hitched a ride on a trailer to Bungoma, where he was finally killed by a mob on the morning of Friday, October 15.
Wanjala's escape was made public on Wednesday, October 13, although contradicting reports indicate that he was spotted in Bungoma a week prior to his lynching.
