According to the police report, Mr Ayoo was the victim of robbery with violence perpetrated by one Fredrick Kivaji alias Asman who is believed to have worked with others not in police custody.

The assailants are said to have stolen the deceased man's motorcycle and disarmed its tracking device at another location.

"Acting on those leads, hey established further that the gadget had been disabled within Namalasire village in Mumias East. Led by the deputy in-charge DCI Kondele, the investigating team initiated a door to door search, bumping into the bike at a house under construction.
