Deceased being conveyed to the morgue

One Father Stephen Kyalo has been found dead in a hotel room in Kenya.

The clergyman who was reportedly serving in Kako area in Makueni Parish, had booked a room at a local hotel at Kilala Market at about 8:00 am last Sunday.

Reports by the hotel management revealed that the deceased had ordered whiskey worth ksh1,600 and locked himself in the room for hours.

Kyalo reportedly remained in his room the whole day without making any more orders. This prompted the hotel attendants to check on the priests at night hour.

Naija News learnt after many attempts to get access to the room proved abortive which resulted in the hotel management seeking the police service to break the door, where they found Kyalo dead.

The priest is said to have committed suicide by taking poison.

Speaking on the incident, Makueni Sub County Police Commander, Timothy Maina, said they recovered a poisonous substance that the priest reportedly swallowed.

Maina said; “It is believed that he ingested a poisonous substance while in the room. We recovered some remains of the substance and a Red Label Whiskey bottle.”

The motive behind Kyalo’s decision remains unclear. His remains, however, has since been moved to Makueni Hospital Morgue awaiting postmortem as further investigations commence.

Meanwhile, the Facebook profile bio of the killer of five-year-old, Hanifa Abubakar, Abdulmalik Tanko has caught the attention of social media users.

The graduate of Bayero University Kano, who kidnapped Hanifa last year December, had described himself as loving, caring, self-sacrificing, compassionate, imaginative and expressive in his bio.

Naija News on Monday reported that the Nigerian Police Force arraigned Abdulmalik, Proprietor of Noble Kids School in Nasarawa Local Government Area of Kano State.

Abdulmalik who confessed to killing Hanifa was arraigned before a magistrate’s Court in Kano.

He was remanded in a correctional centre alongside his two accomplices over the brutal murder of five-year-old Hanifa.
