The judge issued a warrant of arrest against the third accused person Ambani Akasi, whom the police said is on the run.
The matter will be mentioned on February 20 to ascertain whether the accused has been arrested.
The suspect, Mr Protus Sakala alias Salala, was arrested by flying squad officers on Thursday night, barely hours after Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko’s public outcry over the alleged harassment and killings of hawkers by rogue county askaris.
According to Sonko, at the time of the arrest, Salala, who is county askari, was armed with a ceska pistol which he says has already been confiscated by the police.
The Nairobi Senator further offered money to anyone who has any information about the whereabouts of the named suspects.
“I’m offering a reward of Sh100, 000 to anyone who will give information leading to the arrest of the three other suspects who are still at large. My special thanks goes to the DPP and the DCI for a job well done,” he said.
