Nyeri - The inmate who escaped from King’ong’o G.K. prison Friday morning has been arrested in Mukurwe-ini.
He was found at his home after police immediately launched manhunt for him.
The young man escaped while working at the facility’s farm alongside other inmates. They were being guarded by two warders.
Police shot in the air severally to scare him and shelve his plot but he had audacity to continue with his mission of running away from the prison.
Police later found the man, who is in his mid 20s, relaxing at home with family and friends.
However, it has not been established why he fled from the facility which is usually highly guarded.
The incident comes only two weeks after more than 300 inmates convicted with minor offences were pardoned.
