Two bodies of a quartet who went missing on 19th April 2021 were found in two public mortuaries.
The body of Elijah Obuong was found in a morgue in Murang’a County.
Police said the body was spotted by sand harvesters near Mukungai River along the Murang’a-Iyego-Kangema road on April 20.
Obuong’s younger brother Michael Amollo identified the body at around 10:40 on Thursday 29th 2021.
He said the body had no visible injuries.
Benjamin Imbai’s body was also identified at the Thika Level Five Hospital mortuary by his family and friends on Wednesday. A beard and a tattoo he had, helped the family identify him.
The body had been collected from a thicket in the area.
Investigations are underway and police are yet to know the motive of the murders and who is behind them.
A postmortem on the bodies will be done to identify the cause of their deaths.
The search for the other two missing men is ongoing.
Police records place Benjamin Imbai at the centre of a crime committed on January 11 last year when where a gang of seven broke into a car and made away with Sh.900,000 at a car yard on Ngong Road.
It is believed Benjamin was among the gang that had trailed the victim from KCB Buruburu branch to the yard where he intended to purchase the vehicle.
Imbai also had a pending case at Mavoko Law Courts.
35 year old Elinjah Obuong,Benjamin Imbai 30,Jack Anyango 37, and Brian Oduor 36 vanished into thin air after a lunch of nyama choma and drinks in Club Enkare in Kitengela.
Their car, a white Toyota Mark –X was found abandoned at a parking lot about 500 meters from the club the following day.
The quartet is said to have lived in the fast lane and had a history of run-ins with the law.
The four are believed to have spent their fortunes on fast cars, alcohol and women.
