Police hunt for these suspects linked to beating Kilimani man to a pulp

City detectives are looking for two more suspects linked to the blood-chilling assault of a man in Kilimani last week.

The assault was captured in an amateur video that went viral on social media.

The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) has said the two suspects, Innocent Samba and James Luambe Odete, are wanted for assaulting Kelvin Mango Oduor.

“Mr Innocent Samba and Mr James Luambe Odete are wanted by DCI Detectives in Kilimani to face charges of grievous harm and malicious damage to property,” said DCI in a tweet.

Police requested those with information on the supects’ whereabouts to report to the DCI in Kilimani or at the nearest police station.

Four of their accomplices were arrested over the weekend and charged on Monday in a Nairobi court on charges of causing grievous harm. They were each released on Sh300,000 cash bail.

The four included Nairobi politician, Robert Omwenga Momanyi, Mr Collins Neriko, Mr Stanley Rimbere and Mr Stephen Kimeu.

The victim, Kelvin Mango Oduor, told Nairobi News that there was bad blood between him and his assailants after he revealed some secrets about one of them.

“I had said some secrets about one of them and it is then that things started going bad for me,” he said.
