Teenagers accused of murdering a taxi driver released

31 March 2016, 13:09 Geoffrey Kimagut

Nairobi - Three of the five teenagers accused of kidnapping and killing a taxi-driver in Narok town two weeks ago were released by a Narok Court after the prosecution said it had no sufficient evidence to charge the trio.

The prosecution led by State Counsel Mr. David Mwangi said during investigations, the teenagers claimed they had been given a lift in the deceased car which was recovered from them and two other suspects but added that investigators are following crucial leads that could lead to the arrest of another man who is in possession of two illegal a firearms and is believed to be the main suspect in this murder.

Two weeks ago, the prosecution arraigned the five before a Narok Court but did not prefer any charges against the suspects but instead prayed to have the suspects to be remanded for 10 more days to enable them complete investigations in the case.

Those who have been released are Silas Maina Muturi, a Form Four Student at City Mission Secondary School in Nakuru and two brothers; Geoffrey Lompui Morgan and Moses Lonyiet.

 The suspects; Solomon Ndiru Njeri and Bashir Ibrahim both of whom are Students at Fanaka Secondary School in Narok will remain in custody after investigator asked for five more days to complete investigations on them before preferring charges.

Narok Chief Magistrate Ms. Wilbroda Juma granted their prayer and ordered that the case be mentioned on April 4th.

  The five teenagers were arrested in Nakuru two weeks ago after a long chase by the police. The police with the help of the car-tracking system waylaid the car of the deceased taxi man; Richard Simiren car at Mwariki area in Nakuru along the Nakuru-Nairobi highway and arrested the four suspects who were the occupants of the car as Bashir escaped, he was arrested later.
They recovered the body of the deceased in the boot of this car. They were presumably on their way to dispose the body.

They are alleged to have posed as customers and hired the taxi-driver to take them to an unknown destination but when he failed to come home or call his family, the family members reported the matter to Narok Police Station.

This murder caused hue and cry over the safety of taxi operators in the town with the operators calling for security to be beefed up.
