Officers from the Anti-terrorism Police Unit (ATPU) have on Wednesday arrested outgoing prisons boss Wycliffe Ogallo, Kamiti Maximum Prison head Charles Mutembei and his deputy.
The arrests come just hours after President Kenyatta sacked Ogallo with Brigadier John Warioba two days ago following last week’s breakout that saw three terror convicts escape . The new prisons director declined to comment about their status as he had yet been appointed by DCI offices at this point in time.”
Hours after the arrest, it was announced on Twitter that Ogallo had been escorted home from his office. His dramatic seizure at Magereza House along with Mutembei and his deputy were witnessed by journalists who captured their capture on film – yet NPS did not clarify why an armed security detail comprised of ATPU officers accompanied him there in the first place!
