Bungoma County Police Commander Dr Mutungi Musyoki has cautioned residents in the county to shun from taking the law in their hands whenever they arrest suspects.
Bungoma County Police Commander Mutungi Musyoki, he has urged residents to present suspects to the police rather than killing them, source files.
He has urged residents to take suspects to the nearest police station or call the police to re-arrest theft and robbery suspects who will then help in investigations to bring more criminals to book.
“Security starts with an individual, the law does not allow you to kill a suspect because you will also be committing crime,” he said.
This comes after reports that residents are stoning whoever they suspect to be a criminal, what Musyoki says should be avoided at all cost.
On the recent upsurge of insecurity in Chwele where a person living with disability was slain by a gang at his home, he has asked residents to remain calm noting that investigations are ongoing and police have narrowed down to some suspects.
“We are going to arrest all gangsters who are threatening lives of people in that area, we are just asking residents to remain calm,” he said.
In addition, he has assured residents that his team has been scheduled into a 24 hour patrol and livestock theft is going to be a thing of the past.
It should be remembered that those selling livestock will now be required to produce prove for ownership.
Sirisia and Bumula were the hot spots for insecurity but the situation is becoming better after patrols were biffed up at night.
