A Kenyan court has allowed police to detain five suspects linked to the murder of LGBT activist Edwin Chiloba for 21 days.
This is to enable further investigations into the death, including conducting an autopsy and a forensic examination of the deceased’s house and the vehicle which was used to transport and dump the body.
The police said they also need time to review CCTV footage of Chiloba’s last moments and phone records from his handset.
The model’s decomposing body was found stashed in a metal box and dumped along a remote road outside Eldoret town.
Human rights activists and civil society groups have condemned the horrific killing.
The five people arrested include Chiloba’s long-time friend Jackton Odhiambo and three minors.
