Son of a pastor is the primary suspect in Chiloba's Murder

Residents of Eldortet who are familiar with the death of LGBTQ activist Edwin Chiloba have described the main suspect as the son of a church leader.

According to his neighbors, he had the demeanor of the well-behaved son of a religious figure.

According to rumors, his father is a Huruma estate Nyumba Kumi chairman and a pastor.

"Odhiambo's father is our Nyumba Kumi chairman in the Huruma estate, and that is all we can say about him. We didn't anticipate his son being charged with a felony, "a local informed Nation.

When the detectives went to Odhiambo's parents' house in search of possible pieces of evidence, the neighbors spoke to them.

"Odhiambo has always been a reserved and respectful person. Everyone has been horrified by his connection to the University of Eldoret student's murder "said Joseph Wanjala.

"As parents, we are powerless to protect our kids from criminal activity. It is crucial that investigators do out their tasks, detain everyone connected to the activist's murder, and guarantee that justice is served."

In Kapsaret, Uasin Gishu, Chiloba was killed, his body was hidden in a metal box, and then it was discarded along the Kipenyo-Kaptinga route.

In connection with an investigation into the slaying of Chiloba, five people have been held.

The police were given permission to hold the suspects for 21 days by Senior Principal Magistrate Richard Odenyo in order to enable the conclusion of the investigations.

Odhiambo had asked to be released on bail because he believed that if he remained in detention, his family would not survive.

I ask to be released on bail so that I may keep working and provide for my family, he added.

On January 31, the situation will be brought up.

According to an examination of the deceased, Chiloba's death was caused by oxygen deprivation due to mouth and nasal obstruction.

According to the chief government pathologist Dr. Johansen Oduor, he suffocated to death due to an oxygen deficiency.
