Police in Nakuru are probing an incident where a high school teacher was found murdered under mysterious circumstances.

According to area chief David Kering, it is reported that the deceased had engaged in a scuffle with one of the students after the teacher confiscated a mobile phone in the students’ possession.

The victim, Peter Omari, who was also the boarding master is reported to have been attacked on his way out of the institution  and hit severally with what appears to have been a blunt object.

According to Ben Kirui, a neighbour to the slain tutor, the wife of the deceased rushed to his house to alert him that there were screams coming from the school prompting him to rush there only to find the body lifeless in one of the bathrooms in the school.

Speaking to Citizen Digital, one of the students at Hopewell expressed shock and sadness at the inhumane act meted on their teacher.

“It is with sadness and sorrow that we are now mourning Mr. Peter Omari, who was our patron, physics and computer teacher” he said.

Police have since arrested three students to help with investigations.
