Denis Karani Gachoki is the main suspect behind the broad-daylight assassination of Samuel Mugoh Muvota at the Mirema Drive area in Roysambu, Nairobi County, Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) have confirmed.
In social media post, DCI asked the public to help in giving out any information leading to the suspect and further warned against the suspect noting that he is in possession of a firearm.
The sleuths went through past details and found out that the two had close relationship and in one photo the duo shared a round of drinks at a popular joint in Mombasa in November 2020.
“Efforts by detectives to arrest him have been futile since the thug who is well-loaded influences rogue cops who tip him off once an operation for his arrest has been launched.
“On one occasion, Gachoki’s accomplice was texted minutes before his arrest, throwing a spanner in the works of a meticulous operation that had taken months to put together,” narrated the DCI in part.
DCI learned that Gachoki opted to take Mubota’s life after a disagreement on equal sharing of proceeds from their Pishori trade.
They also had issues with each other over women whom they spend quality time with during their free time.
With these disagreements and more, the sleuths believe that Gachoki is behind the assassination of Muvota. Muvota leaves behind seven widows and countless children.
Forensic Cyber detectives picked Gachoki’s last signal deep inside Burnt Forest in Uasin Gishu County, hours after the murder. Detectives believe that the suspect has already crossed the border to a neighbouring country.
“We believe that the suspect has already crossed the border to a neighbouring country,” he added.
Muvota was shoot six times inside his car by unknown assailant moments after dropping a woman at Mirema in Roysambu, Nairobi.
The DCI has launched a manhunt for Gachoki and has asked Kenyans with any information that may lead to his arrest to contact them anonymously via 0800 722 203.
