Masten Millimo Wanjala, the self-confessed serial killer behind the murder of more than 10 minors, has escaped from police custody.
Wanjala was being held at Jogoo Road Police Station in Nairobi when he escaped.
According to a police report on the incident, it is the officer who reported on duty at 7am on Wednesday who noticed that Wanjala was missing.
“This was noticed when they were taking over the report office and cell sentry duties. They informed the D/ocs who was in the report office minuting cases in the OB,” reads the report.
“The deputy OCS informed the OCPD Buruburu and raised alarm and the area was combed inorder to re arrest the prisoner.”
It remains unclear how the 20-year-old suspect, who was set to take plea on Wednesday, October 13, managed to slip from custody.
Last month detectives confirmed that Wanjala had killed four minors in Bungoma, bringing to 13 the number of his victims.
The 20-year-old led detectives to two murder scenes in Machakos county, five in Nairobi and two in Kajiado.
He was scheduled to face 13 counts of murder.
