Masten Millimo Wanjala, the self-confessed serial killer behind the murder of more than 10 minors, has escaped from police custody.
Wanjala was being held at Jogoo Road Police Station in Nairobi when he escaped.
According to a police report on the incident, it is the officer who reported on duty at 7 am on Wednesday who noticed that Wanjala was missing.
When the officer inquired from his two colleagues who were on night shift they claimed they were not aware how the suspect escaped.
“They say they don’t know how he escaped… We have conducted search within the station and no recovery yet,” reads a statement on the incident.
It remains unclear how the 20-year-old suspect managed to slip from custody.
Last month detectives confirmed that Wanjala had killed four minors in Bungoma, bringing to 13 the number of his victims.
The 20-year-old led detectives to two murder scenes in Machakos county, five in Nairobi and two in Kajiado.
He was scheduled to face 13 counts of murder.
