Suspect who killed

1.       Esinyen Lomodo



1)     Why the chief was taken

2)     Why he remained

3)     Who usually fish along Illeret shores

Illeret nurse       –              Joan Yusuf (0701026169) daughter to Abdalla (used to stay in Lodwar)



Source – Abdi taxi “business man Illeret”


Cause of poor coordination between Turkana and Illeret

1)     Security personnel not firm

Ø  People are killed outskirts of the centre e.g. Lopurpur Tiboye (2006), Mzee Corror of Nachukui with luggage of dasseneck

2)     Problem of community



Why bribes from community and no action taken e.g. Gabra took from Dassenach 75 recovered by OCPD and claims no action taken by you

Ø  You patrol OCS do business

Ø  Good councilor promoting peace

Ø  Transfer revoked severally due to corruption (about to be killed by fellow police officers)

Ø  KPR  recruitment and distribution of arms (done at night)

Ø  OCS not in good terms with other opinion leaders i.e. cllr, chiefs, soldier, except he fears area MP Chachu Nyanga
