In More News: Watchman Arrested Embakasi Gas Explosion Case

Law enforcement officials have apprehended a security guard connected to the Embakasi gas explosion, which has resulted in the loss of three lives and left over 220 individuals injured. The arrest was carried out by DCI detectives shortly after being granted a 48-hour window to probe the incident.

Police have indicated that the watchman was responsible for guarding the premises where the gas-laden truck, which subsequently exploded, was stationed. However, the DCI has yet to disclose the charges against the watchman, whose identity remains undisclosed.

According to reports, two mechanics have also been implicated in the incident, with residents alleging that they ignited the fire that triggered the explosion. Concerned residents claim to have detected the smell of leaking gas around 10 pm while the mechanics were attending to a broken-down vehicle nearby. Fearing the consequences, they purportedly cautioned the mechanics against jump-starting the vehicle, as sparks could potentially ignite a fire. The whereabouts of the mechanics remain unknown, pending investigation by DCI detectives. Read More
