A teacher at Amilo Primary School in Kabar East, Muhoroni Sub-county has been arrested for the murder of a 28-year-old man.

According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), David Omondi Otieno is alleged to have died due to injuries sustained following an attack by the teacher identified as Wycliff Ochieng Omollo.

Omollo, 37, is said to have confronted the deceased over an unknown issue before attacking him mercilessly in the 7pm incident.

"John Ochieng Okal, a cousin to the deceased, reported that his cousin was on his way home when he was confronted by the teacher who immediately started raining blows on his head before he landed head first on a stone," DCI said in a statement.

The victim was rushed to Masogo sub county hospital but was referred to Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Referral Hospital where he succumbed to injuries at around 11 pm while undergoing treatment.
