Nyaora who was captured on camera assaulting a female motorist along Wangari Maathai road was nabbed yesterday after being on the run for over one week. He was captured at the Kenya-Tanzania border in Sirare.
The DCI, in a series of tweets, said the elite Crime Research and Intelligence Bureau augmented by a section of detectives from Nairobi DCI Regional command, pounced on him as he tried to cross the border to Tanzania through a panya route.
He had been on the run since last week when he escaped a police dragnet in Mukuru Kaiyaba, through a sewer duct.
WE HAVE HIM

“Since then, he has been engaging detectives in hide and seek games until his arrest moments ago,” said DCI.
At least 16 riders were arrested and arraigned in court last week even as the government announced a crackdown on Boda Boda operators countrywide due to unruly behavior.
A Nairobi court ordered the suspects to be detained for 15 days pending the conclusion of investigations into the incident.
