DCI Reveals What Has Puzzled Detectives In The Murder-plot of Athlete Lucy Njeri By Her Husband

Police have launched investigations into an alleged murder-plot of Kenyan athlete Lucy Njeri.

According to Njeri, her husband paid hitmen Sh1.5 million to kill her. On November 17, she arrived in Kenya from Canada at 10pm. She was then cleared by the immigration officials at midnight before she stepped out to look for her taxi driver.

As she was looking for the driver, she saw him waving a placard with her name. Njeri said that her husband, Nelson Ndereba Njeru, had informed her that he had a Prado to pick her from JKIA.

After entering into the car, Njeri realised that the driver was with another man whom she assumed to be his colleague. They then drove out of the airport headed to the Embassy hotel where she had booked a room. However, she noticed something unusual when they got to the airport’s exit pay point.

Njeri became suspicious because the driver seemed unaware of what to do. She said that the driver of the car behind them in the pay queue came to the front and helped her driver clear the parking fee.

Moments later, the man she assumed to be the driver’s colleague jumped into the back seat of the car and started strangling her.

The man told Njeri that they had been paid Sh1.5 million by her husband to execute her and dump her body in Karura forest.

Luckily, Njeri managed to pursuade the hitmen not kill her, and promised to add them extra money.

The hitmen drove into a hotel in Mwiki and booked two rooms. They then put her into one of the rooms under their constant watch.

Njeri cooperated with the hitmen and the following morning joined them for breakfast. Afterwards, before they drove to Kenol where she withdrew Sh200,000 handed it to her captors.

One week later, she filed a report on the alleged plot to kill her at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations headquarters.

The Head of Serious Crimes Unit says that they want to find out how Njeri could have been booked into a different room at the hotel in Mwiki, wait until morning and join the hitmen for breakfast without raising alarm.
