Kenya has handed to Ethiopia four Chinese nationals who are wanted for murder in the neighbouring country.

The four are Huang Zipheng, Liv Jie, Wang Ming and Chao Fu Xiuzaon.

They were handed over to the Ethiopian Federal Police’s (EFP) national Interpol team.

The Standard in Ethiopia reports the four are suspected of ending the life of a compatriot namely Fu Hui, at a Chinese restaurant in Addis Ababa before fleeing to Kenya.

EFP National Interpol Director, Tsegaye Haile said that the four were nabbed following contacts with Kenya and Ethiopia.

“They were arrested following a synchronised information exchange between Addis and Nairobi, 24 hours after the Ethiopian police placed a red notice alert on the four,” Mr Haile said.

He also said the motive of the murder is yet to be established.

Kenya and Ethiopia agreed to work together on matters security in February.

This followed a meeting between Kenya’s Inspector General of police Hillary Mutyambai and his Ethiopian counterpart, Commissioner General Demelash Gebremichael in Addis Abbas.
