Detectives have apprehended the prime suspect in the murder of Nairobi Hospital Finance Director Eric Maigo.

The suspect, a 16-year-old juvenile, was taken into custody at Olympic Village in Kibra.

The arrest followed extensive efforts by law enforcement authorities, aided by information provided by a member of the public.

"The prime suspect in the murder of slain Nairobi Hospital Finance Director Eric Maigo has been arrested. The suspect, who detectives have established is a juvenile aged 16, was arrested at Olympic village in the sprawling Kibera slums last night, after sleuths received information regarding her whereabouts through the #FichuakwaDCI hotline number," the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) stated.

The teenager was apprehended and subsequently transported to the DCI headquarters for interrogation. She was later booked at Muthaiga police station as the investigation into the shocking murder continues.

The breakthrough in the case was facilitated by crucial evidence, including CCTV footage retrieved by crime scene detectives.

This footage showed the suspect scaling perimeter walls near the location where Eric Maigo's lifeless body was discovered on September 15, bearing 25 stab wounds.

While the arrest is a significant development, investigators are yet to ascertain the motive behind the brutal murder of Eric Maigo.
