The Wife to Bernard Sivo a police officer attached to Nakuru’s Njoro police station has finally talked, revealing how the events unfolded leading to the death of her husband Bernard and her slain girlfriend.
This is after constable Benard Sivo killed his 29-year-old lover Mary Nyambura yesterday after reporting to a local hospital with a fractured arm to seek treatment.
Speaking while at the station, Constable Sivo’s wife Joyce Ndunge, said she begged his husband to surrender his AK-47 rifle not to harm himself or any of his colleagues at the moment.
Joyce Ndunge continued that his husband Sivo called him immediately after the incident informing her that he had finally eliminated the home breaker who was wrecking havoc in their blossoming marriage.
She also narrated a near death experience with the deceased husband after a mistaken identity when the husband shot in her direction thinking she was one of the colleagues but missed him.
“When he picked our daughter from the house, I came out of my hiding and run towards him, he shot at me thinking I was an officer but missed. After identifying myself, I walked up to him and clutched onto his leg, I begged him to put the gun down, he told me that he will not shoot at me because he needed me to take care of his children,” said Ndunge.
After eliminating the lover 29-year-old Mary Nyambura, Constable Bernard Sivo returned to Njoro Police Station where he was based and started shooting in the air endangering the lives of everyone in the station.
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.
