Policer officer found dead shortly after leaving colleagues at the roadblock along Marsabit Moyale road.

Authorities in Marsabit County are investigating into the death of a colleague who was found dead at the Turbi Police Roadblock a long after reporting for duty.

A police report states that the officer was in a cheerful disposition when he arrived at the roadblock on Marsabit Moyale Road around 6:00 am on Monday, March 11.

Following his arrival, the deceased informed his colleagues that he would be going back to Turbi Police Station, located about 50 metres from the roadblock, and report back.

Shortly after the officer left for the station’s office restrooms, gunshots were heard renting the air.

An officer stationed as a guard duty was the first to arrive at the scene and found the officer lying in a pool of blood.

Beside the body, lay an AK rifle with four spent cartridges.

Preliminary investigations revealed that the officer shot himself. The bullet went through the chin and exited through the head.

“Four holes were visible at the rooftop of the toilet suspected to be where the bullets exited,” the police report read in part.

The body was transferred to Marsabit Mortuary for preservation and awaiting post-mortem examination.

Officers have since launched investigations to determine the motive for the incident.
