Six hardcore criminals escape from cell

16 May 2013, 18:22 Alloys Musyoka

Police officers in Tana Delta district have launched a man hunt for six hardcore criminals who escaped from cell at Gamba Police Post Thursday morning.

Tana Delta District Commissioner Mike Kimoko said police officers are pursuing the escapees.

Currently Tana Delta district Police Chief Richard Mukwate is leading the operation to trace the suspected criminals whose whereabouts is not known.

"We are still looking for them all over the bush," said the OCOD who was still in the bush pursuing the suspects.

The DC said they are still investigating how the six managed to escape from the cells which are always guarded by armed Police Officers.

"It it not even clear which route they used," said Kimoko.

The DC said the escapees are facing murder charges and other criminal offences.

He further noted that their cases are still going on and so police have to make sure they are re-arrested.

Tana Delta district has recently witnessed insecurity incidents including the tribal clash which left over 200 people dead and thousands others displaced.
