Murder suspect arrested after prison break
Police at the Meru GK prison have arrested a murder suspect who had escape from the facility Sunday evening under unclear circumstances.
Meru prison boss Benjamin Ngare confirmed the incident saying that the convict allegedly colluded with warders on duty to secure his escape.
He was, however, re-arrested at Consolata Girls Secondary School where he was hiding.
Ngare added that after it was established the convict had escaped, the officers comprising of prison warders and regular police combed the area in his search.
The police boss, however, said it was a mystery how he had managed to escape from the 24-hour heavily guarded facility.
This comes after 3 hardcore criminals escaped from Kamiti Maximum Prison over two months ago by climbing over a wall using mosquito nets, blankets and ropes after cutting through window grills.
