Patrick Nyapara the Administration Police Officer who allegedly shot dead his 24 year old lover Christine Maonga in Navakholo on Thursday has been arrested.

The suspect was arrested by police in Busia along the Kenya-Uganda border Saturday afternoon as he attempted to sneak into Uganda.

Western regional commander, Rashid Yakub confirmed the arrest, adding that Mr Nyapara will be arraigned once investigations are completed.

Mr. Nyapara is an AP officer manning the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) offices in Navakholo, Kakamega County.
