The body of a middle aged man was found dead on Monday morning at Misemwa village in Trans Nzoia County.
It is believed that the deceased, who has not yet been identified, was killed somewhere else before his body was dumped along Kitale Kamukuywa road.
The area chief Fridah Magata confirmed the incident saying that the body had severe wounds across its body.
“We have not yet identified the person but we believe that he was murder in another village under unknown circumstances before his body was dumped here. We have asked the police to help identify the person,” she said.
Residents have urged the security agents in the area to come up with effective safety measures as many people have perished in the hands of criminals in recent months.
“More than 20 people have died in a period of two months and we fear because even police officers have been killed as the criminals in the area are well armed,” area chief added.
Last week, the area police boss James Mitugo promised county residents that his office had jump started investigations and soon those who are responsible for robberies and killings will be apprehended.
