He claimed he was alone from guard duty at County Yard- B near the Eldoret Coca-Cola factory, where he was guarding alongside another officer when he was attacked.

According to police, he was returning to his home when he was hit from behind with a sharp object by an unknown male person who robbed him of his firearm, an A-K 47 assault rifle.

The assailant then vanished into the darkness, heading towards Eldoret GK prison.
