The Independent Policing Oversight Authority (Ipoa) has launched investigations into the alleged killing of Meru University Student leader Evans Njoroge.
In a statement to the media, the authority’s head of communication and outreach Dennis Oketch said a rapid response unit was sent to Meru on Wednesday morning to probe the fatal shooting.
The student’s association secretary-general was shot dead on Tuesday and leaders have called for thorough investigations into his killing.
The Ipoa probe comes as Tigania West Police boss Adamson Furaha and Meru County Commissioner Wilfred Nyagwanga said they were yet to establish the truth about the killing.
Ipoa has urged eyewitnesses to provide information on the killing.
