Thursday, May 21, 2020 – After five days on the run, detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) have arrested the monster man, who inserted pepper in his wife’s genitals and sealed them with super glue after suspecting her of cheating.
The man identified as James Kifo Muriuki, is said to have sneaked from Nairobi last week where there is cessation of movement due to Covid-19 into Tharaka Nithi and ordered his wife, Charity Wairimu, to remove all her clothes and confess to him all the men she had supposedly slept with while he was in Nairobi.
He then put pepper and salt in her genitals and sealed them with super glue while holding her at knife-point and then fled.
However, the long arm of the law has caught up with him after detectives from the Special Crimes Unit, and those of Tseikuru and Tharaka South DCI units smoked him out from his hideout in Kaningo, Kitui County.
Confirming his arrest, DCI posted on twitter:
“30-Year-Old James Kifo Muriuki, who on 16th May, 2020 horridly dehumanized his wife, has this morning been arrested from his hideout at Kaningo in Kitui County by a combined team of @DCI_Kenya Detectives from Special Crime Unit, DCI Tseikuru and DCI Tharaka South,”
“The arrest followed a shocking report made by the complainant, his wife, on how the suspect lured her in the dead of the night to river Kathita whereby he ordered her to strip naked and tell him all the men she had slept with while he was in Nairobi.”
“On being hesitant, she was beaten by the suspect who also sprayed pepper, salt and super glue on her genitalia and later used a knife to push the said contents to her lady parts. Further, it was reported that he sealed her mouth and ears and left her for dead,” added DCI.
The DCI said the suspect will be charged accordingly once necessary police procedure is complete.
