A man is feared to have killed his second wife and dumped her body in unknown place in a village in Nandi County.
The man is believed to have had differences with the woman alleged to have been ailing and had been admitted in Kaimosi Mission Hospital before she was referred to Kapsabet District Hospital for further medication.
According to Assistant chief of Chepsonoi sub-location Samuel Arusei, the woman is suspected not to have been taken to Kapsabet hospital, but had instead been taken home in Chepchabai village in Nandi Central District where she was later reported by neighbours to have gone missing.
Arusei told West Fm in Kapsabet that he reported the matter to police when he was informed that the woman might have been killed by her husband on a mysterious circumstance.
He said that police from Kaimosi police station arrived and arrested the man before he was lynched by angry villagers.
Arusei said that the villagers began searching the body of the woman suspected to have been buried by the suspect in unknown spot in a cultivated farm next to the homestead and the body had not been found by (yesterday) Saturday.
Arusei said, “Some villagers claimed children had seen the man dragging the body of the woman towards the farm where he is believed to have buried it there but I am not certain about that.”
He added, “It is so inhuman if at all he killed her as it is suspected but we are yet to establish the truth from the police.”
Arusei also said that angry villagers had also threatened to set the man’s house on fire but he had intervened and requested them to let police carry out an investigation.
Contacted for comment, Kapsabet OCPD Nelson Okioga said that he had not received any information about the matter but promised to conduct an investigation.
“Several people have been calling to ask about the same but I am yet to confirm from police in Kaimosi police station,” he said
