Detectives from the Directorate of Crime Investigation (DCI), Kilimani in Kenya, have arrested a suspect, who was conspiring to execute a key witness in a matter pending before court.
It was gathered that the suspect, 24-year-Old, Alex Olaba Mahaga, currently facing gang rape charges at Milimani Law courts, was planning to eliminate a key witness before detectives disrupted his evil plans.
Unknown to Mahaga, he discussed details of his scheme to kill the witness, with undercover detectives at a location within Nairobi West.
A Police source said Mahaga was arrested immediately and arraigned at Milimani Chief Magistrates Court, with detectives seeking custodial orders to have him detained for 10 days as investigations are finalized.
“In view of the seriousness of the accusations and the safety of the witness, the Presiding Magistrate, Senior Principal Magistrate Bernard Ochoi, granted detectives seven days to complete their investigations. The suspect is being held at Kilimani Police Station,” the source cited.
