A new twist has emerged in a case where a female police officer was accused of killing her colleague on Monday, July 5, inside Kasarani police station in Nakuru County.
Reports indicate that corporal Caroline Kangogo, the suspect, was married to a senior police officer who is not attached to the station.
This was confirmed by a police officer who sought anonymity due to the sensitivity of the case at hand. The source also intimated that Kangogo had relations with the deceased, constable John Ogweno.
The source entailed that an altercation ensued on Sunday night, July 4, after the senior police officer went to Kangogo's house only to find both her and Ogweno.
"She must have shot him at very close range. The shooter first broke the driver's window before shooting him. He (Ogweno) might have started the car to pursue the other male officer or escape from Kangogo," the source intimated to the Standard.
Further, officers living at the station affirmed that they did not hear of the shooting at the parking lot despite their houses been close by.
The news comes as police officers had identified Kangogo as the prime suspect in relation to the murder. A report was released urging Kenyans to share any information regarding the whereabouts of the suspect.
"Caroline Kangogo has gone missing to an unknown destination. If seen, treat her as armed and dangerous," read part of the report.
The body was discovered by Sergeant Joseph Ologe on Monday morning, July 5, who spotted the car in the parking lot with the engine car still running and the driver's window shattered.
Ologe noted that the deceased had been shot on the right side of the head, which eventually led to his death.
Initially, Interior CS Fred Matiang'i had issued a directive to ban relations among police officers in a bid to curb the recent cases that have become rampant.
"You are officers, we don’t expect you to leave here and go have affairs with constables who you are managing, when it gets to that level one of you has to leave," Matiang'i stated during a past press briefing.
