In a shocking incident that unfolded in Migori County, a middle-aged woman became the victim of a terrifying attack by armed men disguised as police officers.
Speaking to the press, the woman narrated the incident, saying that the armed men raided their neighbourhood in search of her.
When they reached her residence, they knocked and identified themselves as police officers, claiming they needed her at the police station over a report she had filed.
A week before this incident, the woman had filed a report at the Migori police station after an attack by unidentified men that had left her severely injured.
According to her account, the armed individuals claimed that they had arrested the attackers and wanted her to positively identify them at the police station.
Despite her apprehension, she complied, opening the door with her frightened children by her side.
To her horror, the attackers confessed that they were not police officers but had been sent to kill her.
“After listening to their request, I opened the door. At the time, my children were scared and did not want us to go but I convinced them,” she said
“We followed the men to a certain distance when they said that they were not police officers but were rather sent to kill me.”
Desperate to protect her family, the woman pleaded with the armed men.
Tragically, her pleas fell on deaf ears, and one of the attackers shot her in the ribs.
The bullet passed through her back, causing her to collapse in pain and terror.
Terrified by the incident, her children fled while crying out for help. The armed men attempted to shoot at the children but they managed to escape unharmed.
Passersby, alerted by the commotion, rushed to the scene to find the woman lying on the floor, wounded and traumatized.
The assailants had fled, leaving behind a scene of horror.
The woman was promptly taken to Migori County Referral Hospital, where medical professionals are now working diligently to treat her injuries and provide the support she needs to recover from this dreadful ordeal.
