A police officer attached to the Critical Infrastructure Protection Unit in Kiambu lost her life after blowing up her head in a suicide mission.
The deceased cop, identified as Edith Nyawira, absconded duty and used a scorpion rifle that had been issued to her to cut short her precious life on Tuesday at about midday.
She was supposed to be on guard at a local bank.
According to those who witnessed the incident, the depressed cop shot herself in the mouth and the bullet exited in the back of her head.
