In February 2020, the DCI started a manhunt for the two alongside several other people after they were suspected of defrauding the victim.
“We continue to appeal for information that will lead to the arrest of his accomplice Rose Omamo Adhiambo,” appealed the DCI.
A warrant of arrest was issued by the Chief Magistrate's Court at Milimani in February to have the suspects arrested.
Police are yet to arrested the others.
