The gunman behind the Kapenguria police station attack who killed seven police officers has been revealed to be a rogue police officer who worked at the same station.
According to the Standard newspaper, the rogue officer recently graduated from Police College in Kiganjo and was under the radar of police over his behavior. He had been unhappy over a number of issues.
Apparently, he had offered to resign but his application was rejected by authorities. the officer behind the attack had gone off duty on Wednesday night before he returned to the station at about 5.30am Thursday.
The officer behind the killings was killed by the GSU commandos who had flown from Nairobi. Other officers said he had, however, shot and killed one of the commandos and seriously wounded another before he was felled. It was then that it emerged the man who had been thought to be behind the siege and identified as Omar Eumod, a teacher at Victoria Primary in Kacheliba was alive in the cells.
The siege that began early Thursday morning ended at about 2pm.
