Six police officers connected to the killing of the two Kianjokoma brothers were arrested yesterday evening and moved to Nairobi.
According to Embu North Deputy County Commissioner Jeremiah Tumo, the suspects will be arraigned in court today.
The Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji called for instant arrest and arraignment in Nairobi of all the police officers involved.
DPP Haji issued the directives to Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai in a statement yesterday.
“ The move will avoid any interference with evidence or intimidation of witnesses as IPOA investigates the matter. For that reason and keeping in view the urgency of this matter, we expect to receive results of all investigations into this matter not later than close of business today,” Haji said.
IPOA later recommended that the officers involved will be charged with murder.
According to IPOA chairperson Anne Makori, the cops were to surrender any government stores in their possession yesterday, inclusive of their firearms.
Benson Njiru, 22, and Emmanuel Mutura, 19 were found dead earlier this month, after being arrested by police during curfew hours.
