Clergy Hangs Self After Kidnapping And Butchering A 2-Year-Old Daughter Leaving Behind A Suicide Not

A 35-year-old man from Mukuru Kwa Njenga in Nairobi died by suicide on Thursday after allegedly abducting and butchering his 2-year-old daughter.

PoliceOfficer said the victim, Benson Ayieko, recently sneaked into his former wife’s house in Tassia, where the kid was staying, kidnapped the daughter and later killed her.

The child's mother, Phenny Adhiambo, had left for work when her little daughter was allegedly abducted. Adhiambo stays at Tassia with her current husband, Chris Ogutu, who was also at work when the ugly incident took place.

When the husband came back home in the evening, they found their daughter was nowhere to be seen, prompting them to inquire from neighbours on who might have taken the daughter away.

“She (Adhiambo) learnt that a gentleman whose description fitted her former spouse been spotted leaving with the child on a motorbike,” the DCI said in a statement on Twitter on Friday, January 28.

“Adhiambo and her current husbamd immediately drove to Ayieko’s house at Mukuru Kwa Njenga, only to break the door and find the child’s body sprawled on the suspect’s bed, with his body hanging on an electric cable close by,” added the DCI.

The officer say Ayieko left behind a suicide note and Sh600, instructing Adhiambo to use the money to purchase airtime and inform his family and relatives about his death.

The bodies of the victims; father and son were transferred to a nearby hospital morgue in Nairobi.
