The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) detectives have nabbed three suspects in connection with the brutal killing of a 22-year-old student (pictured above) of Egerton University in Njoro, Kenya.

The remains of Miss Eunice Muthoni Njeri was found dumped in Subuku river in Njoro, Nakuru County on December 7, 2020.

Post mortem conducted by Dr. Wangari Wambugu, at the Egerton University Funeral home on December 10, 2020 disclosed that the 400L year student was strangled to death before being dumped in the river.


An official statement released by DCI on Saturday, February 20, said Njeri’s brutal murder was planned and executed by her two close friends and fellow students at Egerton University; Diana Muthiomi and Tamar Wambora Njeru.

DCI added that it all began when Diana suspected that Njeri was having an affair with her husband, Eric Maingi Mutuma.

“A day before Njeri was killed, Diana and Tamar had left for a funeral in Nakuru leaving behind the deceased with Diana’s husband. It is after they returned late at night that they suspected a brewing love affair between the two,” the statement reads.

“A confrontation and bitter exchange of words then ensued. The following day, the deceased was called by Diana and Tamar to ostensibly settle the matter. It was the last time she was seen alive.

“Forensic analysis by our Homicide branch, placed Diana Njeri Muthiomi at the scene confirming that in the wee hours of December 7, 2020, she was at the exact spot where the deceased’s body was found.

“Three suspects Diana Njeri Muthiomi, Tamar Wambora Njeru and Eric Maingi Mutuma have since been placed in custody in connection with the murder. Diana and Eric will also face electronic fraud charges, after 722 Simcards and 7 mobile phones were found in their house.

“The three will be arraigned at the Nakuru Law courts on Monday, to answer to their crimes. Meanwhile, Homicide Detectives have cast their net wider in search of accomplices who helped in the dumping the body.”
