A police officer was on Tuesday morning found dead in his girlfriend’s house in Tena estate.

It was reported that the officer, James Irungu Njoroge (police number 76570) who is attached to Railways Police Station in Nairobi, had visited his lover, namely Doreen Nkirote, and spent the night together. He is said to have died the following morning while having breakfast.

A police report seen by Nairobi News filed at Buruburu Police Station under OB number 14/04/2020 states that the officer was in good moods and that the pair spent a good time together.
