Following a disagreement over a lady, a guy stabbed his colleague to death in Bumula, western Kenya, on Monday morning.
After a night-long battle for the woman's heart only recognized as Njoki, Oliver Wafula stabbed Titus Wamalwa in the chest with a knife.
The incident took place at Njoki’s house.
According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), the suspect behind the killing suffered powerful punches from the deceased, who is rumoured to have been an amateur pugilist.
On the verge of defeat, the suspect suddenly reached for a kitchen knife in the house and drove it deep into his opponent’s chest, killing him on the spot.
Wafula went into hiding after committing the heinous incident but was cornered by the police as he tried to sneak out of the town.
“Detectives got wind of the incident and immediately cordoned off Kimwanga market, in search of the suspect who was finally cornered as he tried to sneak out of town,” said DCI.
The bloodstained kitchen knife used in the killing was also recovered at the scene.
The suspect is being held in police custody pending arraignment.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
