The police has nabbed the man who sealed wife’s private part with glue.
The 30-year old man was arrested days after security operatives launched a manhunt for him..
LIB reported earlier that the suspect identified as Kifo Muriuki had accused his wife of infidelity before luring her to Kathita River, where he threatened to kill her if she refuses to abide by his orders. He then added pepper, salt and onions in his wife’s private parts using a sharp knife, before applying superglue mixed with sand to ‘seal’ it off.
The suspect who has been on the run since Saturday May 16 when he committed the heinous act, was arrested at his hideout in Kaningo, Kitui County by a combined team from Directorate of Criminal Investigations Tseikuru, Special Crimes Unit and DCI Tharaka South.
Kenya’s Directorate of Criminal Investigations tweeted;
