MAKUENI, Kenya, Jun 23 – The body of a lorry driver has been discovered in trailer truck carrying wheat at Emali town.
The body was tied with ropes and laid at a sleeping compartment in the trailer.
Nzaui sub-county police commander Josiah Dullo confirming the incident on Wednesday said the lorry was parked beside the road along Nairobi-Mombasa highway at Emali town.
Dullo said suspicion grew when residents noticed how long the trailer had been parked there with the engine running.
“When our officers were alerted they went to the scene and found a body of a man tied with ropes and covered in a bed placed inside the trailer,” said Dullo.
Police have picked the body and taken it to Kilome Nursing Home Mortuary while the lorry was towed to Emali Police Station.
Police have started investigations.
