30-year-old man who sealed his wife's private part with super glue has been arrested, days after security operatives launched a manhunt for him.
The suspect who has been on the run since Saturday May 16 when he committed the heinous act, was arrested at his hideout in Kaningo, Kitui County by a combined team from Directorate of Criminal Investigations Tseikuru, Special Crimes Unit and DCI Tharaka South.
Kenya's Directorate of Criminal Investigations tweeted;
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_Kenya Detectives from Special Crime Unit, DCI Tseikuru and DCI Tharaka South.
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.
On being hesitant, she was beaten by the suspect who also sprayed pepper, salt and super glue on her Instruments 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.
