Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) have launched a manhunt for Kenyan lawyer Sammy Gichuki wanted for skipping bail.

In a notice shared to members of the public on Tuesday night, the George Kinoti-led directorate said the lawyer absconded court, where he is charged with a Sh20 million fraud.

Waigwa practices under S. Gichuki Waigwa & Associates, a firm based in Nairobi.

He was charged in 2017 with stealing from Aguthi Enterprises.

Police said he appeared in court for the first hearing and vanished into thin air afterwards.
