Wednesday 6th November 2013 - Two hardcore criminals on Tuesday afternoon made a mysterious escape from the Eldoret cells in unclear circumstances.
Police officers are trying to figure out how the escape was possible considering the fact that the cells are tightly secured. The two robbers confined at the Eldoret G.K prison had appeared at the Eldoret court on Tuesday for the hearing of their case when they escaped.
A police officer who spoke to the media on condition of anonymity said that the suspects, Christopher Kibet Ng’elechei alias Pastor, 37, and 29 -year-old Titus Njoroge escaped between 3pm and 4pm on Tuesday afternoon.
Sources revealed that the suspects used a sharp metal tool to cut the heavy door hinges and made their way out.
But who gave them the metallic object?
Eldoret West OCPD, Ndung’u Wa Ikonya, who confirmed the incident said that the suspects escaped through a broken door and passed through a court room that was not in session before driving off in a taxi that was waiting.
Ikonya added that the CCTV footage disclosed every move and the police are sure to catch up on them soon. He urged members of the public to volunteer any vital information regarding the case since the criminals are dangerous and armed.
