“When we rescued the man, we made sure he was safe, later I rang his father who lives at Igembe in Meru and asked him to pick up his son at my house,” Njeri said.
She revealed that things changed when father of the victim came to pick the son. Njeri said that the father was accompanied with police officers who opted to shoot injuring two people.
“At around 4 am, his father called and informed me that he had arrived at the village. I then sent out four people among them my daughter to meet him at the nearby road but surprisingly he was accompanied by police officers,” she added.
