Cornered Oscar Sudi surrenders to the police after dramatic manhunt

Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi has finally surrendered to the police after a dramatic manhunt that saw heavily-armed police officers camp raid his home.

Sudi presented himself to the police at Langas police station in Eldoret, bringing the dramatic manhunt to an end.

Accompanied by a host of leaders including his lawyer-Uasin Gishu woman rep Gladys Shollei and Soy MP Caleb Kositany, Kimilili MP Didmus Barasa among other leaders, the MP arrived at the police station shortly after 8 am.

"It was unnecessary to be treated with a lot of drama by sending contingent of police officers to my home. I was away the time police arrived at my place. Thank you all for standing with me," Sudi stated.

The lawmaker was shortly afterwards flown to Nakuru where he will be processed and arraigned in court.

Sudi’ escape and the manhunt launched by the police remains a controversial subject that has since roped in officers from the elite Presidential Escort Unit who were reportedly involved in his escape.

Three officers working with the Presidential Escort Unit who have since been identified as Simon Siengo, Issack Dida and CI Ekiru reportedly arrived in a Prado as a team led by Uasin Gishu County Police Commander Ipara and the County Criminal Investigation Officer (CCIO) closed in on the embattled MP.

It remains unclear if the three were acting on their own volition or on the orders of a high-ranking government official supported by Sudi.

Sudi is a vocal supporter of DP Ruto who coincidentally, resides in Karen.

Reports indicate that Simon Siengo and Issack Dida remained in Sudi’s house where they were eventually arrested while CI Ekiru fled the compound together with the MP.
