Missing Rongo University student found dead.
A female university student abducted with a Nation Media Group reporter this week has been found dead in Homa Bay.
Sharon Otieno, a second-year Medical Records and Information student at Rongo University was seven months pregnant, according to reports. The journalist, Barack Oduor, escaped from the abductors – who he says are known to him – by jumping out of a moving vehicle.
A special team of homicide detectives has been dispatched to Migori and Homa Bay to investigate the murder of the university student.
DCI boss George Kinoti says key statements have been taken from some of the witnesses, including the journalist to firm up the case, before arrests can be made. “A team has left Nairobi to undertake the investigation of the abduction and murder of the university student,” Kinoti told Capital FM News on telephone, “we are taking the matter very seriously.”
According to the journalist, he was going to meet the PA while accompanied with the deceased when they were abducted.
Police have confirmed that they are interrogating Obado’s PA over the abduction and subsequent murder and will also interrogate the Governor.
