Prison Warden Kills Himself After A Heated Disagreement With Lover

Residents of Lessos area in Kwanza Constituency, Trans Nzoia County have been left in shock after a Kenya Prisons warden blew up his head inside his house on Wednesday night.

Elias Kipchumba Too, the officer, who was on a night shift sneaked from his duty station with a G-3 rifle which he used to end his life after looking depressed.

Confirming the incident is the Kitale Medium Prison Officer in charge, Julius Kaliakamur, who said that the 25-year constable did not leave behind any suicide note but showed some sign of disturbance.

“Elias was on duty yesterday night. He then sneaked out with his firearm, later it was realized that he was not there and we got concerned. We rushed to his house in Lessos area and found him dead” Kaliakamur said.

He revealed that the warden who has been in service for three years had sought for transfer that Kenya Prisons Service was working on after he had a disagreement with lover.

“Transfers are normal in service, we received his application for transfer and forwarded the same to the regional prison’s boss who was actually working on” he added.

The body of the late officer has been taken to Cherangany Nursing Home morgue awaiting autopsy.
