A police officer attached to Njoro police station earlier today Monday August 23, 2021 stormed a local hospital and killed his girlfriend before committing suicide in Nakuru County.
Reports indicate that Mary Nyambura a woman aged 29 reported at the facility with a fractured right arm to seek treatment after being assaulted by her boyfriend.
While at the facility and receiving treatment the said boyfriend and a police officer Benard Sivo stormed the hospital and shot her several times killing her instantly.
According to the police, Bernard Sivo who was on duty at the station excused himself to make a phone call outside the duty station with his AK-47 rifle S/NO. 4912292 with 30 rounds of 7.62mm special.
After taking the short break, he then pursued his girlfriend to the hospital where she was receiving treatment, and shot her severally killing her instantly.
“While at the scene the deceased body was found having been shot severally on the right arm, right wrist and on her right back,” a police report read in part.
Sivo would then head back to his duty station after committing the heinous act with his gun shooting aimlessly at everyone and everything endangering the lives of his colleagues at work.
His colleagues were then mobilized to disarm him in the middle of the madness but he unfortunately shot himself at the chin with the bullet exiting at the the upper head killing him instantly.
“The officers were mobilized to disarm him but unfortunately he shot himself on the chin and the bullet exited on the upper forehead and he died instantly,” a police report on the incident read in part.
The two bodies are currently at the Egerton University Morgue awaiting postmortem.
This comes at a time when there are increased police related killings in the Country, with the Police IG Hillary Mutyambai recently announcing plans in place to provide counselling and other mental health packages for the police, to avoid such incidences.
