The man was forced to dismantle the roof of the house and managed to escape but the angry mob that had gathered outside pursued and lynched him.

Confirming the incident, the Eldoret OCPD Richard Omanga said the suspect died as he was being rushed to the hospital.

Mr. Omanga warned the locals against taking the law into their own hands, urging them to hand over suspects to the police instead of meting out mob justice on them.
