Speaking at the official opening of the direct entry cadet inspectors course at National Police Service College in Kiganjo, Mutyambai asked the DCI to form a special team to probe the case that has shocked the nation.
Jack Ochieng, 37, Benjamin Imbai, 30, Elijah Obuong, 35 and Brian Oduor, 36, disappeared after lunching at a popular restaurant in Kajiado County on April 19. Three of the men have since been found dead.
“This morning, I directed the DCI homicide team to investigate this matter in order to get to the bottom of it. The team has already begun its work,” said Mutyambai. He added that the team should present a report to him within a month.
Bodies at different locations
Imbai’s body was found in a thicket in Thika and taken to General Kago Funeral Home. Obuong’s had been found earlier at the Murang’a County Referral Hospital morgue. It was positively identified by his younger brother. The body had no visible injuries.
Just like Imbayi’s body which was booked at General Kago on 20th April, records indicate that Obuong’s body was booked into the facility on April 20, just a day after they went missing.
That of Ochieng was discovered in Mathioya River by sand harvesters. The upper limbs were missing. The whereabouts of Oduor are still unknown.
Though the management of Club Enkare denies that the four men were there – as per CCTV footage-, a mysterious Facebook user named “Ericko” reportedly leaked information of their last sighting to family members, complete with the location of the car.
The car, a Toyota Mark X registration KCQ 715C was found unlocked. It was towed to Kitengela Police Station. The nature of the men’s business is unknown though one of them is said to have been in the car hire business.
According to DCI records of arrests, one of the men- Imbai- had been nabbed in January 2020 following theft of KSh900,000 from a car parked at a used car showroom along Ngong Road, Nairobi.
