A popular Twitter influencer, Frank Obegi, and three of his friends, Elijah Omeka, Mose Nyachae, and Fred Obare Mokaya, have been brutally murdered in Kenya.
It was gathered that the bodies of Obegi, Elijah Omeka, and Mose Nyachae were found dumped in a forest in Lari, Kiambu County, on Sunday, June 19, while that of Fred Obare Mokaya was found in Magadi, Kajiado County.
Three of the victims were extensively mangled, and it appears they were killed by strangulation and had their private parts cut, according to Lari OCPD, Anderson Furaha.
“One of them had been partly eaten by wild animals. Their private parts had been amputated and it seems they died through strangulation. They had no identification documents and were naked,” Furaha said.
The four friends were reported to have gone missing between Monday and Wednesday last week from Kasarani, Nairobi County, before the gruesome discovery was made.
Family sources told Nation.africa that two of the men went to file a missing persons report following the disappearance of one of their friends, only for them to disappear too.
After one body was discovered on Saturday and three more on Sunday, residents in Lari alerted authorities.
“We suspect that the four were killed elsewhere and their bodies dumped within this area,” Philip Kamau.All the four bodies had deep cuts to the neck, and chopped private parts. We are now scared because this is new to this area”, a resident said.
Furaha revealed that the police have begun an investigation into the case in order to find the killers.
