The incident happens barely a month after 11 robbery suspects escaped a Bungoma police station by digging a hole through the wall.
The incident which cast a bad light on the security of police holding cells across the country caused a widespread outcry from Kenyans as many of the suspects were dangerous criminals.
The Bungoma 11 escapees were robbery with violence suspects Brian Ochieng and John Wanyonyi ; assault suspects Simon Wekesa, Collins Juma and Emmanuel Wakoko; Breaking and stealing suspects Isaac Wekesa and John Barasa; Alex Simiyu Muyekho (theft), Bramwell Barasa (defilement); and Pascal Kiberenge (impersonation).
Police have so far managed to re-arrest some of the escapees including Simon Wekesa who was shot.
