A man, Abdulkarim Njoroge, has allegedly killed his lover, Irene Kaanu, before hiding her corpse in a freezer in his apartment. The incident happened in Mtwapa region, Mombasa, Kenya.
The 25-year-old suspect, a university undergraduate is said to have strangled the deceased following an argument that ensued between the couple. Kaanu had threatened to end the relationship after she found out Njoroge impregnated another woman, who lived in the same house.
A Kenyan news portal, Star, reports that the police arrested the suspect on Tuesday, two weeks after the deceased was declared missing. The deceased’s body was found naked with her lower part sticking out of the freezer.
The accused was also said to have stolen his lover’s car and withdrew Sh40,000 from the latter’s M-Pesa account.
The case is currently under investigation.
