A sombre mood engulfed Oyugis town in Rachuonyo South Sub County after a 35-year-old man was found murdered and parts of his body mutilated.

Rachuonyo South Sub County Police Commander Lillies Wachira said the deceased, identified as Evance Okoda, was killed last night in Oyugis near his rented house.

Wachira said the head had deep cuts inflicted using a sharp object and that the assailants also chopped off the tongue and his right fingers and took off with the chopped body parts.

“The nose was also chopped off causing deformation of his face,” Wachira said adding,”Okoda left his house during the day for his errands in Oyugis town. He stayed there until night.His wife expected him to return home in the evening but he did not turn up.”

Instead, neighbours woke up and spotted Okoda’s body near his house. It seemed he might have been killed during a heavy rainfall that was pounding the area that night.

“His wife said she didn’t hear any commotion because it was raining heavily at night,” Wachira said.

He said the motive of the murder has not been established and the suspects were still at large but they had launched investigations into Okoda’s death.

The body was moved to Rachuonyo South Sub-county hospital mortuary in Oyugis town.Okoda had been offering security services to various politicians.
