A police officer facing terror related charges committed suicide in his house in Nairobi’s Shauri Moyo area.
The body of constable Waiss Abdulaziz Mohammed who was on suspension was found hanging on the frame of his bedroom door on Saturday.
He was alone at the time of the incident. The officer was attached to the National Disaster Management Unit and was on suspension for indiscipline.
Mohamed had on July 3, 2017 been presented in court in Nairobi on speculation that he would commit a suicide terror attack after he posted a message on his Facebook wall.
The June 28 2017 Facebook post read, “… lets see if I get through Sunday….” He was detained for 30 days to allow for completion of investigations but was freed days later. His wife Agnes Muthoni Wanjiku told the court then that her husband needed psychiatric treatment and not arrest and incarceration.
