Police are investigating the circumstances under which a University of Nairobi student died at the Mamlaka A Hostel early Sunday.
The fourth-year student, Ian Kibet Kimaiyo, fell from the third floor of the hostel and was found dead a few minutes past midnight.
Police said a security officer, Titus Awuor, reported to them that the student had fallen from the third floor but he was not certain whether he had been pushed.
“Police visited the scene and could not immediately establish the circumstances behind the incident,” police said.
Kibet’s body had blood oozing from the nose and visible injuries at the back of the head, police said Monday.
The body of the student was moved to the Chiromo mortuary awaiting post-mortem which will help unravel the mystery behind the death.
