• One of the suspects directed the officers to where three of his accomplices who were on the run were hiding before they were arrested.
Police in Busia have arrested four suspects in connection with the grisly murder of Ann Achieng Mung'ayo, a nurse at Busia Referral hospital.
Achieng was murdered in cold blood on 12 September 2021 in broad daylight by the goons who reportedly used crude weapons at her residential home in Amerikwai near Busia Airstrip.
According to Busia Police Commander John Nyoike, the officers received a tip-off on the whereabouts of the suspects in whose possession the identity card of the deceased was discovered during the ambush at their hideout.
He said one of the suspects directed the officers to where three of his accomplices who were on the run were hiding before they were arrested.
Nyoike said the suspects included Boniface Odhiambo, Musa Olwete, Robert Muirabu and Evans Ochieng. “The police department is working closely with DCI and other security agencies to put up a solid case,” said Nyoike.
He said the four will soon be arraigned in court for the mention of their case even as police demand for 14 more days to conclude with their investigations.
“I want to sound a firm warning to those goons and criminal gangs operating in Busia that your days are numbered. Police are alert on any more you take,” added Nyoike.
