Family of the man who was shot to dead in his home in Kirinyaga by gunman is now seeking out for justice.
Stephen Kariuki, popularly known as Karis Chokora, succumbed to his injuries on Wednesday after being shot five times by a lone gunman who had stalked him from the city.
Speaking in Karuti village, Gichugu constituency, the family said Kariuki 41 years old was fatally attacked by unknown assailant shortly after he arrived at his rural home for a family prayer meeting.
“I came all the way from Nanyuki on the fateful day for family prayers. It is tragic that my sister’s son was killed in cold blood as we watched helplessly. We are calling for justice for Kariuki,” his aunt Rose Ngima said.
According to Gichugu DCI boss Millicent Ochuka, detectives have heightened investigations in efforts to bring the gunman to book.
The DCI believes that the suspect followed the deceased from Nairobi.
Kariuki’s body is lying at Kibugi Funeral Home.
