Five suspected thugs beat up police officers and jumped out of their vehicle while being taken to Migori High Court on Tuesday.
Four of the men, who were from Awendo police station, escaped in different directions at Kakrao area, five kilometers from Migori town.
People who witnessed the scene said they realised something was amiss when they noticed that those inside the police car were fighting.
“The officers ran after the men and left the woman in the vehicle. She calmly walked out, hailed a passing boda boda rider and rode to freedom towards Migori town with her handcuffs intact,” the witness said.
Migori county police commander David Kirui said police launched a manhunt for the suspects.
