“We are told a gang of seven youths broke into the home. They intended to steal chicken,” Vihiga County Commander Hassan Barua said.

A gang of seven men attacked a Vihiga-based businessman to death on Friday evening.

The man who operated an agrovet at Magada Trading Center alongside  Elizabeth Achieng’ and their children Gifton Ambani and Ann Ambani were hacked leaving the man, wife and son dead on the ground. The girl later succumbed to injuries at Kakamega Referral Hospital ICU section.

According to the Daily Nation, Police reports indicated they had already found the names of those involved in the heinous act and that it was just a matter of time.

“We are told a gang of seven youths broke into the home. They intended to steal chicken,” Vihiga County Commander Hassan Barua said.

Mr Barua regretted that police were informed of the attack an hour after it took place yet the home is near Magada police post.

He also noted that officers from Mbale Police Station, not the post, were the first at the scene.

According to the publication, Mr Barua, who was accompanied by County Commissioner Ochillo Oyugi, called for collaboration between police and the public in efforts to arrest the suspects.

Mr Barua said the number of police officers at Magada will be increased and patrols heightened to address insecurity. Story/Courtesy/Daily Nation-
