A second body of the four men who went missing in Kitengela, Kajiado County on April 19 has been found in Thika Sub-County.

The body of Benjamin Imbai, 30, was retrieved from a thicket in Thika, Kiambu County and taken to General Kago Funeral Home.

Imbai’s family declined to speak to the media with police saying the body was moved to the morgue on April 20, a day after he and the other three went missing.

Earlier on, the body of Elijah Obuong', 35, was also retrieved from Mathioya River in Murang’a County stashed in a sack.

According to the deceased’s brother, Obuong’s body was also moved to Murang’a County Referral Hospital morgue on April 20.

“It is unclear who booked in the body at the facility,” he said.

A postmortem examination is scheduled for later Thursday.

Imbai and Obuong’ were in the company of two other friends who have been missing for more than a week now.

Obuong', Imbai, Brian Oduor (36) and Jack Anyango Ochieng (37), went missing on April 19, 2021.

The four arrived at Club Enkare in the afternoon, ordered a few drinks and were last seen leaving the entertainment joint at 3pm towards the facility’s parking bay, where they had left their vehicle; a white Toyota Mark X of registration plate KCQ 715C.

Their subsequent movements were not captured on tape, as Club Enkare had not installed CCTV cameras.

After days of being unreachable on the phone, the missing persons’ respective family members filed distress reports.

Police, thereafter, visited Enkare Club and found the men’s vehicle still at the parking lot.

Isinya Sub-County Police Commander, Anderson Njagi, told The Standard that a probe into the four men’s disappearances has been escalated to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) Headquarters.

“We don’t have so much to reveal about the men yet,” he said.

Njaagi said preliminary investigations indicated the four were in transit from Nairobi when they stopped over for refreshments at Enkare Club.

The Isinya police chief said the missing friends’ vehicle was towed to the Kitengela Police Station, where it would be subjected to forensic analysis.
