Police officer Harrison Onywoki and his two brothers were returning from a family meeting before an armed gang ambushed them. The three staged a fight to retrieve the phones that the machete-wielding gang had stolen. From the preliminary reports, they sustained multiple injuries, with Onywoki succumbing to injuries at Nakuru Provincial General Hospital.
According to a police report, the victims staged a fight with suspects, but they were overpowered, leaving them seriously injured and they were rushed to the Nakuru Provincial General Hospital (PGH) by police officers on patrol, but Onywonki died from his injuries while receiving treatment.
“Kenya Police Service officers and DCI officers visited the scene under the command of SCPC Nakuru West and SCCIO Nakuru West. The other two brothers were treated and discharged in fair condition." ~ Police statement.
This has come after several incidents of attacks claiming several lives have been witness in the country where Kenyans have been necessitated to call upon Interior Cabinet Secretary Hon Kithure Kindiki to put more security forces to more endangered places like the streets of the cities and attacked places like Turkana and Baringo.
Following this, the police officers have called upon the public to remain calm as the process of investigation is ongoing as they promised to bring to suspects to the books.
