A security guard of a private school committed suicide today in a classroom at Shilongo area, Manda sub location in Kakamega North Sub County.
The lifeless body of Jacob Wera Bunuka, 35, was discovered by Brain Land Academy head teacher Jacob Bushuru at 6.00am when he reported to work.
“I reported to the school at 6.00am and didn’t find the security guard at the gate and thought he had already gone home. But while doing patrols around the classes, I was shocked when I saw his (security guard) lifeless body hanging from the rooftop,” Bushuru said in his statement to the police.
According to Kakamega County police commander, Bernard Muli, the police could not immediately establish his motive since he did not leave a suicide note behind.
“Police have launched investigations into the matter to establish why the security guard took his own life,” said Mr Muli.
The police commander said the deceased body was taken to Webuye County Referral hospital mortuary awaiting postmortem.
