The three people who are currently being held by police were taken into custody for carrying the metal container used to dump of the body.
The total number of people in custody now stands at four.
The suspects, according to police spokeswoman Resla Onyango, were under the age of 18. She added that the car used to dump the deceased’s body had been found by authorities.
Jackton Odhiambo, the main suspect and Chiloba’s lover, admits to killing the victim after learning of his partner’s infidelity.
Alex Nyamweya, Chiloba’s caretaker, claimed that on January 4, Jackton called him on Chiloba’s phone to let him know he was leaving the home they shared.
Along the Kipenyo-Katinga Road in Uasin Gishu County, a metallic box containing Chiloba’s deceased body was discovered.
