A wanted criminal was on Tuesday November 30, 2021 nabbed by sleuths who have for a long time been on his trail.

The suspect, identified as Samuel Gona Kaingu, was apprehended by DCI officers as he attended a court hearing at the Mombasa Law courts.

"The officers had gotten wind that the 21-year-old miscreant would be attending a court hearing for an on-going criminal case. The information volunteered by a concerned member of the public turned out to be true, when the thug strolled into the court compound before noticing the presence of our hawk-eyed men," a statement by the DCI read in part.

Upon noticing the detectives, Samuel attempted to flee arrest before he was rounded up and put in custody.

Police say that the suspect will be arraigned in court to answer to various charges of robbery with violence,
