A 38-year-old foreign national accused of murder was on Tuesday morning arrested while trying to flee the country.
The suspect, Ajak Dau Aketch was arrested by detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) in collaboration with immigration officers at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) in Nairobi.
He was waiting to board a KLM flight to Arizona, the United States through Amsterdam, the Netherlands, according to the DCI.
He was flagged down by DCI officers from Turkana West who were trailing him over a murder investigation. The DCI said the suspect will be paraded in court after relevant police procedures are complete.
The DCI did not disclose details of the murder allegations facing the foreigner, his nationality or what he was doing in the country.
