Nairobi Hospital Acting Finance Director Eric Maigo was on Friday found dead at his Woodley home, in what is suspected to be murder.
According to police reports, Maigo’s body was found with 16 stab wounds, 10 at the chest and the others on his sides.
Police are still carrying out a probe into the matter, but they say a woman who was reportedly with the deceased at the time of his death is the prime suspect in the murder.
“We are still on the case, but the neighbours said they heard him groaning in pain and the woman who was in the house refused to open the door, but had escaped when police arrived,” Kilimani Police Station boss Moss Ndiwa said, according to the Nation.
Ndiwa said police presently are trailing the unidentified woman, who they suspect might have escaped through the window after committing the hideous act.
Maigo’s death had been reported by Nairobi Hospital CEO James Nyamongo through an internal memo.
Nyamongo mourned his member of staff saying the body was found by his neighbours at around 6am, adding that the family had been informed and an investigation was already underway.
