Kisumu Chief Magistrate Godfrey Hillary Oduor was on Thursday, December 17 found dead in the Nairobi house of his girlfriend.
The magistrate’s body was discovered by his partner, Njoki Muhia, who returned to her Riverbank Estate-Phase 2 house in South B from work at 6:30pm.
“On arrival, Njoki found her house closed from [the] inside, and she tried to peep through the bedroom door. Upon checking, she saw her boyfriend namely Godfrey Hillary Oduor, whom she claims to be a chief magistrate at the Kisumu Law Courts, totally asleep but the emitting foam on his mouth,” says a police report filed at the Industrial Area Police Station on Thursday, December 17.
Njoki told police that Oduor moved in with her in September 2020 after his house in South C, Nairobi was “closed due to rent arrears”.
Upon finding Oduor foaming at the mouth on Thursday, Njoki filed a report at Hazina police post. The matter was booked under the OB Number 19/17/12/2020
Police, thereafter, rushed to the scene, broke down Njoki’s door and moved Oduor’s body to City Mortuary.
