A man who allegedly stuffed pepper, salt and super glue into his wife’s private parts has finally been arrested.
The 30-Year-Old James Kifo Muriuki, who on 16th May, 2020 horridly dehumanized his wife, has this morning been arrested from his hideout at Kaningo in Kitui County by a combined team of DCI detectives from Special Crime Unit, DCI Tseikuru and DCI Tharaka South.
According to police report under OB4/17/5/2020 filed by the victim Charity Wairimu, James Muriuki travelled from Nairobi to Marimanti in Tharaka, it appears the man was suspecting his wife was cheating on him.
On reaching home, Muriuki is said to have ordered his wife to go to River Kathita, and then instructed her to remove all her clothes so that she may tell him about all the men she has been sleeping with while he was in Nairobi.
“The arrest followed a shocking report made by the complainant, his wife, on how the suspect lured her in the dead of the night to river Kathita whereby he ordered her to strip naked and tell him all the men she had slept with while he was in Nairobi,” reads a statement posted by DCI.
On being hesitant, the victim was beaten by the suspect who also sprayed pepper, salt and super glue on her genitalia and later used a knife to push the said contents to her lady parts. Further, it was reported that he sealed her mouth and ears and left her for dead.
The suspect will be charged accordingly once necessary police procedure is complete.
It is yet to be known how Muriuki was able to circumvent through the police roadblocks that have been erected, after government ordered the cessation of movement of people into and out of the Nairobi Metropolitan area, as a measure of curbing COVID-19.
