The main suspect in the murder of a police officer at Kasarani Police Lines in Nakuru is wanted for the murder of another man who was on Tuesday afternoon found dead in a hotel room.
According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), Ms Caroline Kangogo who is a police constable and the main suspect in the murder of John Ogweno is believed to be the last woman who was seen walking into a room at Hotel Dedamax in Kimbo, Kiambu County where the body of a man identified as Peter Ndwiga was found lifeless.
“The rogue officer who took off with Ogweno’s firearm a loaded Ceska pistol lured a man to Dedamax Hotel in Kimbo, Juja area at around 4 pm yesterday. She later emerged from the room at around midnight and fled to an unknown destination, leaving the dead man’s body sprawled on the bed,” DCI boss George Kinoti said in a statement.
According to Kinoti, Kangogo lured the man to the VIP room, paid for it before turning against him and ending his life.
She then left the hotel at midnight after informing an attendant that she had gone to purchase toothpaste
A police report seen by K24 Digital further reveals that Kangogo and the deceased booked the hotel room number 107 at 4:22 pm.
“The body of the man was found to have a bullet wound on the head, and one empty spent cartilage of 9mm was found in the room,” the report filed at Theta Police Station read in part.
Police searched Ndwiga’s pockets and found a wallet that had an Identity Card bearing his name and car keys with a holder containing the registration number KDB 506U.
The body of the late Ndwiga was moved to General Kago mortuary awaiting postmortem.
A detective privy to the ongoing investigations on Tuesday told K24 Digital that investigations were ongoing to ascertain whether Ndwiga was the man who had gone to Kangogo’s home in Nakuru on Sunday.
According to police in Nakuru, Ogweno who was found dead inside his car at the parking lot of Kasarani Police lines in Nakuru was in the house of Kangogo when the unidentified man arrived.
The man then opted to leave the house without causing any commotion which led to differences between Kangogo and Ogweno.
Police in Nakuru said that they did not hear any gunshots when Ogweno was killed similar to an argument by attendants at Dedamax hotel in Juja who said they never heard the gunshots.
K24 Digital has further established that Kangogo was once married to a senior Marine officer based in the Coastal region and that they together have two kids.
The Kenya Police in a statement on Tuesday night said that Kangogo was “lethal, armed and dangerous.”
