The three terror convicts who escaped from Kamiti Maximum Prison on Monday morning have been arrested.
According to Citizen Digital, a Kenyan website, three jailbirds; Musharaf Abdalla alias Alex Shikanda (34), Joseph Juma Odhiambo (30) and Mohammed Ali Abikar (35) were arrested in Enzio forest in Mwingi East, Kitui County.
The three, who are believed to have been heading to Somalia, were arrested following a tip-off from the public.
The terror convicts are on their way being driven back to Nairobi.
They escaped from the highly guarded prison after dislodging a brick on the wall of their cell. They then used blankets, strings and broomsticks to create makeshift ropes that they used to scale two high walls around the correctional facility.
The daring escape saw several Kamiti prison officers arrested for allegedly aiding the criminals to flee.
On Wednesday, President Kenyatta directed Interior Cabinet Secretary Dr. Fred Matiang’i to spare no resource in pursuing and capturing the Kamiti escapees.
He urged all State investigative agencies to bring every person found to have been involved in the prison break to full account.
