Detectives According to the source, they identified Erico as the person who called the families to inform them of a possible kidnapping by the Kitengela Quartet. Investigators believe the man and his girlfriend might have witnessed the kidnapping, but the kidnappers apparently weren’t interested in the duo.

“The two could have witnessed the kidnapping of the four. It seemed like the kidnappers who might have subjugated the four blocked them before they got to their car, “said the detective.

” Erico’s cell phone signal was last recorded in Bungoma. We’re chasing him. “

Bath the four goodbye

One of the four men, Mr. Imbai, is from Bungoma County, and homicide detectors suspect that he and the mysterious Erico may have been fellow villagers .

“I wasn’t on duty that day, but they (the four) are regular customers in particular on weekdays . They were kind customers and sometimes offered good advice like any other wealthy customer. There was nothing unusual about them, ”she said.

The popular club, which is housed in a semi-permanent structure on Namanga Road, is known for its nyama choma and is popular with young people and rhumba music lovers.
