Detectives are pursuing a female police officer linked to the murder of two people in Nakuru and Kiambu.
The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) described the suspect named Caroline Kangogo as armed and dangerous.
Corporal Kangogo is reported to have shot and killed Police Constable John Ogweno, 28, in his car parked within Kasarani police quarters in Nakuru on Monday before fleeing with his loaded Ceska pistol.
The suspect allegedly emerged in Juja, Kiambu County on the same day where she also shot dead another man identified as Peter Ndwiga Njiru, 32.
She is said to have lured Njiru to a room at Dedamax Hotel in Kimbo at around 4:00 pm and shot him on the head at point-blank range before leaving at midnight and fleeing to an unknown destination. The man’s body was found lying in a pool of blood on the bed.
Kangogo reportedly told an attendant working at the hotel that she was going to buy toothpaste, only for her to escape.
The hotel workers told detectives that they did not hear any commotion or gunshot during the period when the crime was committed.
A wallet containing a national identity card and Toyota Probox car keys were found in the man’s pockets. His body was moved to Thika General Kago Funeral Home awaiting autopsy.
“We are cautioning members of the public especially men to be on the lookout for the rogue officer, who is luring men to her trap before executing them in cold blood,” DCI said.
“Let nobody trust her since she is armed and dangerous. Should you spot the suspect who is covering herself in a buibui, do not hesitate to contact us.”
