Kenya on Friday handed over four Chinese nationals wanted for murder in Addis Ababa to the Ethiopian Federal Police’s (EFP) national Interpol team.
The four are: Huang Zhipeng, Liv Jie, Wang Ming and Chao Fu Xiuzaong,
The Addis Standard reports that the quartet allegedly murdered another Chinese national, Fu Hui, at a Chinese restaurant on the fifth floor of Tolosa Legesee building in Addis Ababa before fleeing to Kenya.
EFP National Interpol Director, Tsegaye Haile, stated that the suspects were arrested following a synchronized information exchange between Addis and Nairobi, 24 hours after the Ethiopian police placed a ‘red notice’ alert on the four.
Investigations into the alleged murder are currently ongoing.
This comes on the back of a February 2022 meeting between Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai and his Ethiopian counterpart, Commissioner General Demelash Gebremichael, at EFP Headquarters in Addis Ababa.
The two police bosses discussed various matters including how the two agencies would cooperate and work together to fight regional and transnational crime.
