Police officers in Vihiga are holding a student who reportedly attacked and killed the school guard on Sunday morning.

The Form Three student from Nyang’ori Boys Secondary School is said to have become unruly and attacked fellow students when the guard intervened.

The 18-year-old student, according to police reports, then turned on the guard – since identified as Willy Mukonambi – and hit him on the head repeatedly using the rod.

The guard was rescued by colleagues who, alongside the school nurse, rushed him to the Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral Hospital in critical condition.

He however succumbed to his injuries while undergoing treatment at the facility.

The suspect is presently in lawful custody and is expected to be charged with murder.
