Kinango - The suspected criminal who attacked officers snatched their gun and fled before being arrested has succumbed to injuries.
Mwaiwa Bora died at Kinango hospital on Thursday night some hours after he was arrested at his Tata hideout.
He had sustained buttocks and shoulder injuries after being shot twice by police when he became hostile during his arrest.
Kinango sub-county deputy county commissioner Moses Ivuto said the officer died some hours after police recovered their gun loaded with 30 round of ammunition.
Ivuto said police were rushing to be shown where the suspect had hid their gun after being arrested where he is said to have lost a lot of blood.
He observed that the suspect had seriously one of the female police whose gun was snatched during the Tuesday night incident last week and another officer who are doing well.
“The accused person escaped and he went to a witchdoctor where we are told he was advised to seek medical attention first before officers got him,” said Ivuto.
He said that even the officers who pursued him did not see blood stains as the man was putting on a lot of clothes.
“Our officers tracked him helped by locals under nyumba kumi security initiative where they found him laying restlessly in a traditional doctor’s house,” said Ivuto.
Ivuto said that his officers were given the fire arm by elders after consultation when the suspect took them everywhere he claimed to hide the gun without tracing it.
“He later had directed officers to someone who knew where the gun was because it was claimed his brother had took it but elders intervene and we got our fire arm,” he said.
Ivuto said that police have been tracing Bora since May when he disappeared after causing grievous body ha m to his wife.
He said the deceased was laid to rest on Friday after he was pronounced dead by doctors in Kinango hospital.
