Charles Oluenyi was cornered in a flat in a six-storey flat where he had been hiding since Friday when he allegedly killed his former girlfriend in Njiru.
According to police, the man had visited his girlfriend to sort out their domestic issues but was later seen running away after setting the house on fire.
It was later discovered that he had tied the woman’s hands, locked the house ad set it on fire before he fled. She sadly died in the incident.
On Wednesday morning, detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) who had been trailing him stormed his hideout in Kayole where he locked himself up and scaled the balcony wall where he threatened to jump off the fifth floor.
The video of the dramatic arrest went viral as the narrator took us through his crime, while investigators begged him not to kill himself and instead allow himself to go to court and plead for mercy.
In the video shared below, we hear a detective saying “Nilikuambia you have a life to live. Dont do it, Sasa kisu ni ya nini? Tukuskize tujue upande wako uko nammna gani, si nikutuhumiwa unatuhumiwa? We ni suspect, si umesoma? Wewe unatuhumiwa ya kwamba unaweza fanya kitendo, si ni kweli? Lakini hio kitendo si kuumanisha ati wewe utanyongwa Uklo na haki hata ya kupelekwa kortini Korti isikize kweli kama uko na cae au huna uko na right ya kutafuta wakili mpaka wakati case itasikizwa”
At this point the suspect didn’t seem convinced and hang onto the balcony to jump. But the officer added that
“So uko na haki, ni wengi wamefanya vituko mingi kuliko ile umefanya and yet tuko nao hapa na tunafanya kazi na wao. So ile kitu unafanya mi nikiangalia kabisa kabisa inaeza kuletea aibu hata kwa mungu” The officer pleads more
Charles at this points gets off as seen in the video below.
