Man commits suicide at police station in Narok
A middle aged man committed suicide on Monday night at Ololulunga Police Station in Narok South.
According to the area OCPD Ezekiel Kitche, the man hanged himself using a blanket inside the police cell where he had been locked up.
“He tore a piece of the blanket he had been given to cover himself. We could not immediately establish why he took his life,” said Mr. Kitche.
The police boss said the deceased had been arrested for alleged involvement in criminal activities in the area and that he killed himself just a few minutes after he was locked up.
According to Mr. Kitche, police officers on duty were out on patrol and it was raining during the incident, hence, no one heard the man committing suicide.
The family of the deceased raised doubt over the turn of events, urging the Independent Policing Oversight Authority (IPOA) to probe the matter.
The body of the deceased was taken to the Narok County Referral Hospital mortuary.
