A 24-year-old man, Kelvin Akal has been arrested after he stormed Kisumu Central Police Station with the head of his 70-year-old grandmother in Nyalenda, Kisumu County, Kenya.
The young man was said to have walked into the police station on Monday afternoon with his grandmother’s head in a bucket.
Police officers had initially thought he was at the station to see a relative held at the station or wanted to make a report.
But the officers were shocked when they inquired what was in the bucket, and the suspect confessed that it was the head of his grandmother.
The suspect was immediately arrested at the station, He later led the officers to a tin-roofed semi-permanent house which they shared by the old woman at the sprawling Nyalenda Kilo estate to pick up the remaining part of the body.
A neighbour, who spoke to newsmen, said the man had been living with her grandmother for several years at the estate.
“His parents are said to have died and his grandmother took him in,” the neighbour said.
He however admitted that the suspect always assaulted the deceased but no one imagined that he would murder her.
The police are yet to establish what could have led to the bizarre incident that shook the entire estate.
A police officer who was at the scene to pick up the remains of the grandmother said the suspect told them that he killed her to end her suffering.
“He said he wanted her grandmother to rest,” the officer said.
