Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) are in pursuit of a man alleged to have killed his ex-lover within Nairobi’s Njiru area on Thursday.

According to the police report seen by Citizen Digital, the man who went missing after the incident torched his victim inside her house.

Two house helps who were employed by the deceased said they had been asked to leave the house to allow the deceased and the suspect some private time to iron out their issues.

It was around 8 am.

Later in the afternoon, the house went up in flame and despite the efforts to put out the fire nothing was salvaged.

According to homicide detectives who visited the crime scene, the deceased appeared to have been tied before her house was set ablaze.

Kayole based detectives are working jointly with the DCI’s Crime Research and Intelligence Bureau (CRIB) in the manhunt.
