A freelance journalist was on Wednesday night brutally murdered by armed thugs who raided his home in Kitale, Trans Nzoia County.
It is alleged that three men armed with AK47 rifle broke into Dennis Otieno’s house at 12am shooting him several times killing him instantly.
It’s believed that the gang was trying to recover photos that the late journalist had taken at an event.
Reports also indicate that in an attempt to cover up the motive of the murder, the three stole a TV set and woofer which they later dumped within the compound.
The gang are also said to have made away with Otieno’s camera. Kwanza OCPD Wilfred Mogere confirmed the incident and said police are already pursuing the suspects.
The body of the late journalist was taken to the Kitale District Hospital mortuary.
