A daring assault on a police station in Homa Bay County two weeks ago that resulted in the loss of four police rifles and more than 100 rounds of ammunition has been traced to its perpetrator.
Detectives from Homa Bay detained Charles Nyumba Ongany, 27, on Tuesday when he was in possession of a G-3 gun that was loaded with 20 rounds of 7.62mm ammunition.
In Abuje village in Nyando, Kisumu County, “the detectives entered his father’s compound and dug the complex in search of the firearms after getting wind that the deadly arms stockpile had been concealed there,” according to police on Wednesday.
After the early-morning raid, the suspect’s father, who is also thought to be a member of the violent gang, narrowly escaped the police dragnet; a manhunt is currently being conducted to apprehend him.
On the evening of November 16, a group of unidentified thugs carried out an attack on the Kipasi Police Post in Mbita. They forced their way into the station’s armory under mysterious circumstances and stole 110 rounds of ammunition as well as 110 G-3 rifles and one AK-47 assault rifle.
