A young man was found dead by a roadside today morning and his motor cycle stolen by who the police believe is a passenger he was taking home.
Stephen Kamau Wanjiru, 27, a boda boda cyclist in Nyeri town, was found dead along Nyeri - Gatatha road near Gatatha coffee factory in the outskirts of Nyeri town.
According to Nyeri OCPD, Kirunya Limbitu, police received information from members of the public that there was a body lying by the roadside.
Police from the Nyeri Police station visited the scene and established that he was hit with a plunk of wood that was still at the scene.
The OCPD promised to get to the bottom of the matter and said that the criminals will finally be apprehended.
Kamau’s body was removed at the Nyeri Provincial General Hospital awaiting postmortem.
Meanwhile, boda boda cyclists have called upon the police to beef up security in the outskirts of Nyeri town by increasing daily patrols all over the County.
They said that security is mainly concentrated in Nyeri town, forgetting the outskirts, making a haven for notorious gangsters that have been terrorizing them.
They said that Kamau was an ever jovial man, well known, and had never been at cross-roads with any person, therefore eliminating rumors that he was murdered as a result of previous confrontations with any person.
