FBI agents have issued a notice for fugitive Kamau Kambui, a man of Kenyan origin suspected to have trafficked a minor for prostitution.

The US agency has offered a reward of up to$10,000 (Sh1 million) for anyone with information that will lead to the arrest and conviction of the 28-year-old also known as Leland Curnal.

He was described as being 5’11”, weighing 185 pounds and having black hair and brown eyes. His aliases are Kamau K Curnal, Kamau Kambui Carnal, and Jr Kamau Curnal.

“Curnal should be considered armed and dangerous. Do not attempt to contact him directly. If in the immediate vicinity, call 911,” reads the notice.

“Anyone with general information or tips about the location of Curnal is asked to call the FBI office in his or her area. In Portland, the number is (503) 224-4181. In Seattle, the number is (206) 262-0460.”

The FBI said the man was charged by a federal grand jury in Oregon in October 2016, with the sex trafficking of a child and transporting a minor for prostitution.

“The indictment alleges that Curnal and a second man, Aaron Barnes, drove a minor victim from Portland to Seattle as part of a trafficking operation.”

The FBI arrested Barnes in November 2016 in Lincoln, Nebraska. His case awaits further court action.

The notice on Kambui resulted from allegations of criminal activity in Oregon but he is believed to have ties in Seattle where he may be living.
