Nancy Njeri, a police officer based at Wote Police Station has been arrested and is to be arraigned in court for attempted murder.
She is accused of chopping one Onesmus Masaku’s hands using a panga.
Law Society of Kenya President (LSK) Nelson Havi echoed their sentiments and refuted earlier claims that the lawyer had tried to rape Njeri.
“Police in Makueni are complicit in the attempted murder of Lawyer Onesmus Masaku by Policewoman Nancy Nyeri. The two are known lovers and Njeri attempted to kill him after he refused to accede to her demands for marriage. Nancy Njeri should be arrested and charged,” he said on Twitter.
The lawyer was admitted at the Kenyatta Hospital in Nairobi and said to be in critical condition.
