Police in Kakamega County have launched manhunt for two robbery with violence suspects who escaped from Kakamega Police Station cells.

According to a police statement seen by K24 Digital, Denis Indeche, 26, and Allan Kemoli, 29, escaped from the station’s cells under unclear circumstances on Thursday, May 25.

"Indeche, had been arrested three days ago by sleuths from the elite Crime Research & Intelligence Bureau, after being on the run for weeks.

"He is wanted for numerous armed robberies in Western Kenya, including the attack on a senior DCI officer based in Kakamega, who was lucky to escape death, with life-threatening injuries," the statement added.

Police officers on duty

Two police officers who were on duty when the duo escaped have since been placed in custody to assist with investigations.

"Should you have any information that may lead to the arrest of the two suspects, please dial 0800 722 203 to speak to our agents, or report to any police station near you," the police urged members of the public.
