Confessed child serial killer Masten Milimo Wanjala has reportedly escaped from police custody.
Wanjala, who is accused of murdering more than 10 minors, was being detained at Jogoo Road Police Station in Nairobi when he escaped on Tuesday, The Standard reported.
It remains unclear how the 20-year-old suspect managed to break out of the police cell, a day before being arraigned in court to face murder charges.
Following his arrest in July, the suspect led detectives to two murder scenes in Machakos county, five in Nairobi and two in Kajiado. Last month, detectives confirmed that Wanjala had killed four more minors in Bungoma, bringing the number of his victims to 13.
Investigations revealed that Wanjala single-handedly massacred his victims in the most callous manner, sometimes through sucking blood from their veins before executing them.
Police said the suspect was barely 16 years old when he executed his first victim, a 12-year-old girl who was kidnapped in Machakos in 2016.
Detectives established that all the murder victims were stupefied using a white substance in powder and liquid form, before being executed.
