“The police quick response and intervention was evidently responsible for their arrest.” It added that,”The two suspected students were suspended indefinitely pending the outcome of the police investigation and further findings on the matter.”

The statement however noted that,” Adewusi Vincent who was mentioned along with the two has ceased to be a student of the institution having been withdrawn from the Polytechnic since 2017 for poor performance.”

“The Management wishes to state unequivocally that cases of cultism have been a thing of past in the institution as the new management under Dr. Lateef Ademola Olatunji has purged the institution of all forms of cultism, gangsterism and other anti social vices since he came on board as Rector in 2017.”stressed the statement. ” The Management has been dealing decisively with any student suspected to be involved in cultism or any criminal acts.”added the statement.

Published

on

A 38-year-old man in Nandi County on Sunday night hacked his wife to death using a panga before hanging himself following a domestic quarrel.



The man from Kapkatet village had separated with the woman who had gone to live at her uncle’s home near Ndalat three kilometers away.

The man waylaid the woman near Ndalat and hacked her several times and fled.

He was later found hanging on a tree at his parent’s home.

The woman identified as Ednah Kurgat, was a mother of three children and was living with her uncle Philip Songok, an Assistant Chief.

Residents said the two had separated last year after a domestic quarrel and efforts to reconcile them failed.

Emily Sawe, the woman’s aunt, witnessed the incident and narrated to the Star how she pleaded with the man to spare her niece.

Sawe said the man did not hear her pleas and turned hostile.

“She slashed her several times on the head and other parts of the body,” Sawe said.

The man later jumped over the fence and disappeared into the bush after the attack

Police who were called to the scene after the incident found a jacket, a mobile phone, and a bottle of Vodka left behind by the man.

Area MP Vincent Tuwei and deputy county commissioner Sammy Makhanu visited the scene and condemned the attack.

“We have had a high number of domestic violence incidents in this area because of high consumption of alcohol and drugs among couples,” Makhanu said.

Tuwei asked residents especially couples to involve elders and church leaders in solving their domestic disagreements.

Makhanu said they would step up the fight against alcohol and drug abuse in the area which has also witnessed high levels of crime

“Killing or violence is not a solution. We should use alternative ways of solving domestic issues like involving elders or church leaders,” Tuwei said.

He said the youth were most affected by the use of drugs and alcohol and many of them also engaged in crime and such violence to resolve issues.

The two bodies were taken by police to a private mortuary at Kapkaren in Uasin Gishu county.
