A prisoner poured a bucket of urine on a police officer

Benjamin Maloba was on December 24, 2020, arrested to Turbo police station in Kakamega County. This was on account of warrant of arrest issued as CR 974/28/20. The remandee with court file number 1449/20 was kept in a cell waiting to be taken to court.

On December 25, 2020, the suspect was assigned to clean the male cells. He then requested an escort to the nearby latrine to go empty the bucket full of urine water. It is after this that Police Constable Ruthanira decided to escort the suspect.

On reaching the latrine, Benjamin suddenly turned and poured the urine on Constable Ruthanira’s face and escaped to the nearest forest. The police then raised the alarm through whistle calls, and police officers ran for his help.
