Family members of four men who visited the mortuary of Murang’a Level 5 Hospital on Thursday confirmed the identity of the body of 35-year-old Elijah Oboung.

Oboung’s body, which was hung on a sack with a gun, was found last week on Thursday dumped on a bridge on the Mukungai River which borders Kiharu and Kangema divisions.

Until then, police could not identify the body, which was naked with injuries to the hands and feet.

Murang’a County Criminal Investigation Officer Mr Daniel Kandie said police officers were in the process of identifying the body before the relatives confirmed they belonged to a relative.

“Relatives today came forward and confirmed the body of one man Elijah Oboung who was among four men abducted last week in the Kitengela area,” Kandie told KNA.

Obuong’s relatives refused to speak to the media saying journalists had been portraying their missing relatives as wanted criminals.

The CCIO said the correct procedure would be followed before the family was allowed to take the body saying postmortem would have to be done.

Residents of the area where the body was found dumped complained that several times bodies from other areas had been dumped there saying the incidents had left many living in fear.

The car they were using was found abandoned in a parking lot several meters from the restaurant that took lunch.
