Police in Kenya have arrested a man from Tharaka-Nithi who sealed his wife’s vagina with superglue, accusing her of infidelity.
In a state on Thursday the police said the suspect, James Kifo Muriuki, 30, was arrested from his hideout in Kaningo, Kitui County.
He is alleged to have first assaulted his wife before sealing her vagina with the glue and then fled the community.
The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) said in the statement that “The arrest followed a shocking report made by the complainant, his wife, on how the suspect lured her in the dead of the night to River Kathita whereby he ordered her to strip naked and tell him all the men she had slept with while he was in Nairobi.”
Tharaka South Police Commander Kiprop Rutto also revealed that Muriuki first inserted pepper, salt and onions into his wife’s private parts using a sharp knife before applying superglue mixed with sand to “seal” it off.
The suspect is now expected to be charged in court for his alleged crime, according to the police statement.
“The suspect will be charged accordingly once necessary police procedure is complete,” the DCI statement said.
