A man who was alleged to have been attacked by a bouncer at an Eldoret club last week has succumbed to his injuries.

20-year-old Abraham Kibet had been admitted to the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital on May 4 in serious condition.

According to MTRH chief executive Wilson Arwasa, Kibet arrived at the facility with serious head injuries and was immediately taken to theatre.

A brain surgery was conducted after which he was moved to the Intensive Care Unit.

He died on Thursday.

It is reported that Kibet who hails from Kapsoya was attacked by a bouncer at Bamboo Club at around 3am.

He was allegedly pushed down the stairs before good samaritans intervened and took him to hospital.

According to Bamboo Club manager Jonathan Munyaka, they are working with the relevant authorities to unravel what exactly transpired on the fateful day.

The suspect was arrested and arraigned in court on Monday this week but the prosecution sought for more time for investigations.

He is currently being held at the Eldoret Central Police Station.
