Police in Nyandarua have arrested a man suspected to be selling dog meat.
The arrest comes after locals raised an alarm with authorities over what they termed as Ndirangu Wahome’s suspicious hawking activities.
A police report filed at Wanjohi police station indicates officers laid a trap leading to the arrest of Mr Wahome.
“It was reported by Ms Wambui, the Chief Wanjohi location that there was a man hawking suspected fried dog meat in a hot pot within Wanjohi town. He was arrested by police officers.”
Police demanded Wahome directs them to his home and were dumbfounded by what they allegedly found including a slit separate dog head, a sufuria supposedly used to cook the meat, a blood-stained knife, and a blood-stained panga.
Other exhibits found in the house supposedly include a wire which police believe he uses in trapping the dogs, and 10 grams of bhang which is illicit in Kenya.
The bhang was found inside his house alongside a dog which police believe was also scheduled to be slaughtered on a later date.
