Ediot allegedly arrived home 30 minutes before his wife and left shortly after on realising that she was not yet home. A war of words ensued when he finally returned and confronted Shiku.
Apparently, he was angered by her lateness since she was a mother of a one-year-old baby, whom she had left under the care of her younger sister, Diana Irungu.
According to Diana, Idiot arrived around 3am before leaving and when he returned, shiku was driving in too.
The verbal exchange between the couple reportedly escalated and turned physical.
“After a brief quarrel, he told her to pack and leave for our parents’ home in Buruburu Phase II. But when she was driving out, he followed her to the gate, grabbed her by hair pulled her out,” Diana said.
Ediot was allegedly too drunk and Shiko, with the help of her sister, overpowered him and he fell down. The two then allegedly took off in different directions and soon afterwords the sound of a gunshot rent the air.
“He cocked the gun and pulled the trigger, and shot my sister in the back of the head at close range, just few metres outside the main entrance,” Diana explained.
Diana said her sister fell to the ground exclaiming, “Umenishoot!” meaning “He has shot me”!.. but Ediot allegedly started kicking her while waving his gun and preventing anyone from rushing her hospital.
Diana, upon realising things were getting out of hand, alerted her father and brother who also live in Buruburu about two kilometres away. But they arrived one minute too late.
When their parents arrived, Shiku was unconscious and bleeding and when they tried to lift her into her car, Ediot prevented them from rushing her to hospital.
“He got into his car and knocked Shiko’s car from the rear but luckily his neighbours prevailed on him and he eventually allowed us take to take her to the nearby Jamaa Hospital where she was pronounced dead,” the sister added.
A postmortem exam confirmed that the deceased had a bullet wound on the upper right side of her back.
