Security personnel in Emuhaya, Vihiga County, have moved in to investigate the circumstances surrounding the discovery of a 50-year-old man’s decapitated body at his home last Tuesday.
In his remarks during a security baraza held in Emuhanda village, the deputy county commissioner for Emuhaya urged locals to come forward with information that could aid police in catching the offenders.
Regardless of whether this was a ritualistic killing or criminal activity, Masua remarked, “We are asking with whoever decapitated Alfred Esilaba to drop it (the head) somewhere.”
To rule out the possibility that the family buried someone who was not related to them, Emuhaya DCI Douglas Isaboke invited family members to attend a DNA test to determine whether the trunk belonged to Esilaba.
While speaking to the residents, the local MP Omboko Milemba urged Interior CS Prof Kithure Kindiki to assume full responsibility for ensuring that the murderers of Esilaba are brought to justice.
According to Omboko, “Kithure Kindiki is responsible with ensuring that every Kenyan is secure.”
He said, “We will not keep silent as criminals start slaughtering our people for body parts!
Milemba urged on the CS to post more police officers in Emuhaya and make sure they are well-equipped to secure residents, accusing the government of allegedly failing to equip police posts that he had built using CDF funding.
