Three men at the centre of a mid-day incident in which a woman allegedly killed one of them and sucked the blood oozing from his head were fighting over the said woman.
According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations the “three men had engaged each other in fisticuffs over the suspect, before she drew a sharp object, driving it deep into the ear of one of them, killing him instantly.”
In a statement, DCI said: “Startled onlookers who had witnessed a squabble burst into a major clash restrained the violent female suspect, who is said to have started sucking blood that oozed from one of the men.”
The incident at Saa Mbaya, Kahawa West, Nairobi, left many agape. The suspect was identified as Margaret Wambui Wangari. She also allegedly stabbed the two other men. The fight triggered the attention of police officers who had been deployed at nearby schools to guard the KCPE exam exercise.
The officers arrived at the scene “just as outraged members of the public were about to lynch the suspect, who had further inflicted a serious cut at a second man’s forehead.”
The critically injured men were taken to Kenyatta University Hospital, as police rescued Margaret from the angry mob.
“As further investigations continue, Kasarani detectives are piecing together evidence to establish what exactly led to the scuffle that claimed a life, and left two fighting for their dear lives at ICU beds,” said DCI.
Margaret was arrested and will be arraigned on murder charge.
