Police in Siaya County are investigating the death of a 25-year-old university student who died after alleged suicide in his rented house at Southlands Estate in Siaya town.

Laban Onyango, who was a student of Jaramogi Oginga Odinga University of Science and Technology Siaya campus was pronounced dead at the Siaya County Referral Hospital.

According to Siaya County Police Commander Cleti Kimaiyo, the incident was reported to Siaya Police Station by the hospital’s Medical Superintendent Dr Michael Oduor who stated that a dead body had been brought to their casualty room as an emergency case.


Dr Oduor stated that officers from that station visited the hospital and established that the deceased’s girlfriend Sharon Achola who is also a student at the same University’s Siaya Campus had rushed his boyfriend to hospital after he attempted to hang himself using a lesso.


Mr Kimaiyo said that according to Sharon, her boyfriend had visited her on Tuesday morning and during the night he kept threatening to take his life and even made a Facebook post about his intentions, claiming that his parents and siblings were making his life hard.

On Wednesday morning, Sharon woke up and went to take bath then returned and found the door locked from inside.

She then raised an alarm that attracted neighbours who swiftly responded and climbed over the roof only to find Laban Onyango hanging with a lesso round his neck.

Mr. Kimaiyo stated that they went ahead to cut the lesso then rushed Onyango to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The scene was processed and documented before the body was moved to the same hospital’s mortuary pending autopsy.
