Iteere urged to intervene over case

27 November 2012, 12:23 James Kabotia

The family of two teenagers allegedly shot dead by thugs recently in Laikipia North district now want the Police Commissioner Mathew Iteere to intervene in the case, blaming the area security agents of laxity in arresting the bandits.

They have condemned the police for failing to visit the scene despite the family offering to provide transport.

Led by John Parmashu who is also the Mukogodo ward councilor, they said that Mushee Leitiko aged 16 and his cousin Iltorision Leitiko aged 10 were shot dead by thugs on Monday last week as they were herding cattle at Losos village, Sieku location in Laikipia North district.

"Our police are doing nothing over this matter and we request the top boss Mathew Iteere to help us get justice," said Parmashu.

According to Stephen Leriman, a relative of the deceased, one of the boy’s head was found close to two blood-stained clothes.

The crime was reported by a relative had gone to take them food from Doldol town.

Losos Village is about 80 Kilometers from Doldol town and is at the border between Laikipia and Isiolo Counties.

It is alleged that their bodies were feasted upon by wild animals, and the suspected killers are from a neighbouring district.

They did not steal any animal.

Another relative, Daniel Leitiko, said that the two bodies were riddled with sixteen bullets since the same amount of spent cartridges were collected from the scene.

However, area OCPD Benjamin Maritim refuted claims that his officers failed to visit the scene.

“I personally sent my officers at the scene and they managed to recover four spent cartridges of ammunitions and a spent one, ”  Maritim said.

The police commander said that only blood stained clothes were found but no body parts, adding that they could have been eaten by wild animals.

He added that investigations are underway and that there is no need for alarm.
