A man has hanged himself after murdering his three-year-old son, Derrick Okeyo in Nairobi’s Tassia Estate.
Married couple Victor Ayieko and Nancy Adhiambo had a three-year-old son. The couple later went their separate ways, and Nancy re-married to Christopher Okeyo.
On one fateful day, Ayieko abducted Derrick from their home in Tassia after Nancy and the husband left the home for the day.
Upon returning home, Nancy learned that her son was missing. She inquired with the neighbors who had seen a man who looked like Ayieko sneaking away with Derrick.
“She inquired from her neighbors on his whereabouts and learnt that a man whose description fitted her former husband had been seen leaving with baby Derrick, on a motorbike. They immediately rushed to Ayieko’s house in nearby Mukuru kwa Njenga only to break the door and find baby Derick’s lifeless body sprawled on the suspect’s bed, with Ayieko’s body hanging on an electric cable close by,” the DCI said.
