Policeman found dead inside his house hours after leaving work


The body of a policeman attached to Ogembo police station in Ogembo, Kisii County was on Tuesday morning found in his rented house.

Confirming the incident, Kisii County Police Commander Martin Kibet, said the officer had complained of chest pains before going home on Monday around 3pm after his duty.

According to Kibet, the Officer Commanding Station (OCS) at Ogembo police station became suspicious when the deceased failed to report to work on Tuesday morning.

His colleagues were dispatched to the officer’s house when he failed to answer phone calls.

When the officers found the door locked from inside, they knocked it down and found their colleague laying dead on his bed.

Some painkillers were also found on the scene, an indication that the deceased may have purchased them from a pharmacy to ease the chest pains he had complained of.

The police are now waiting for the autopsy report to know the cause of the officer’s death.
