A man, who was allegedly pushed down a flight of stairs by a nightclub security officer at Black Bamboo Lounge in Eldoret, has died.

The deceased, Abraham Kibet, had an altercation with the bouncer last week and was pushed down the stairs.

He suffered a blow to the head and was quickly rushed to hospital by his wife and a male friend.

According to Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital Chief Executive Officer Wilson Aruasa, Kibet died on Thursday and had been in Intensive Care since last Saturday.

“The victim was admitted at our hospital on Saturday at around 3.20am with head injuries. He was wheeled to the theatre where a brain surgery was conducted before he was taken to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) on Sunday morning.

“Unfortunately, we lost him on Thursday at around 11am,” said Dr Aruasa.

The suspect is currently in custody as police complete investigations on the matter.

The club’s manager Jonathan Munyaka admitted that the incident happened at the club, adding that the deceased was a frequent reveler at the entertainment facility.

“It is true that the incident happened at our club and we are working with the authorities to unravel the truth.

“The victim is a common reveller at our club and we have nothing to hide,” he was quoted by a daily.
