Detectives are looking for Elizabeth Emboyoga Litonde in connection to a child trafficking ring in the country.
Litonde, is suspected to be the mastermind behind the disappearance of school-going children who are trafficked outside the country as slaves.
She is believed to have escaped to western Kenya moments before our sleuths from the serious crimes unit pounced on her.
“Any info regarding her whereabouts will greatly assist us in safeguarding the lives of our children,” said the DCI.
Elsewhere, five suspects after being busted with narcotic substances during a swoop in Nairobi. Sleuths drawn from the Anti-narcotics Unit based at DCI Headquarters nabbed the peddlers at an apartment within Nyayo Estate in Embakasi.
The five, two South African nationals and three Kenyans, are believed to be part of a larger group that has been operating a transnational drug trafficking syndicate.
After a detailed search of the apartment, several items were recovered including 240 pellets of unknown substances believed to be narcotic drugs, five mobile phones, a laptop and travel documents.
A Toyota Mark x with a Burundian registration number was also impounded. The suspects who had been detained at the Muthaiga police station have since been arraigned, with detectives seeking an extension of custodial orders to facilitate further interrogations.
All the exhibits have been dispatched for forensic analysis at the Chemistry and Toxicological lab based at the recently commissioned DCI National Forensic Laboratory.
