Niarobi - Police in Isiolo County have launched manhunt for a 20 year-old woman who allegedly stabbed a 30-year-old man to death in Isiolo town at Game village, Burat Ward.
Isiolo central Assistant County Commissioner Otieno Okich said the victim, Osman Abdilahi, died while receiving treatment at the local District Hospital.
He said Abdilahi was attacked with a kitchen knife and that he had gone to intervene in a fight between the suspect and her husband during the Saturday night incident.
“The deceased was stabbed in the chest with a kitchen knife and the attacker escaped in the dark,” said Okich.
Okich said angry neighbours burnt down the suspect’s house after she fled from the scene of the incident together with her husband.
The police boss promised that once apprehended, the woman will be charged in court.
Residents said they heard commotion between the couple but could not tell what they were quarrelling about.
The woman’s father was later injured in a retaliatory attack by the deceased person’s family and was hospitalized at the County Referral Hospital.
