Adhiambo’s former husband Victor Ayieko is reported to have sneaked into the house when she had left with her husband before committing the crime leaving behind a note and Ksh 500.

“Adhiambo’s former husband Victor Ayieko, 30, had sneaked into their house in Tassia estate and left with the boy before he killed him and hanged himself. Adhiambo and her husband had left in the morning to fend for the family and on returning back, their son was nowhere to be seen.

She inquired from her neighbors on his whereabouts and learnt that a man whose description fitted her former husband had been seen leaving with baby Derrick, on a motorbike.

They immediately rushed to Ayieko’s house in nearby Mukuru kwa Njenga only to break the door and find baby Derick’s lifeless body sprawled on the suspect’s bed, with Ayieko’s body hanging on an electric cable close by.

A suicide note from Ayieko and Sh500 were found on the table, instructing Adhiambo to buy airtime worth the amount and inform the entire family of his demise.” Said DCI

Following the incident, parents have been advised to ensure their children are protected and even left behind in safe hands when they are away.

“Owing to the increased cases of missing children in city estates, parents and guardians are urged to guarantee the safety and security of their children, by leaving them in the hands of responsible adults whenever they are away.” Said DCi
