He is being investigated for the offense in connection with the death of his wife, Sharon Njeri, who died between the nights of July 29 and 30, 2022. The DJ is in custody at Kasarani Police Station.
This is after police constable Wicks Lumumba of Kasarani in an affidavit filed before Principal Magistrate Eric Mutunga said Nieri died by suicide with the help of Njiiri. The deceased was seen consuming poison in a video captured by Njiiri.
The detective said Njiiri failed to prevent the commission of the said offense which led to the death of Njeri. Police said Njiiri had been summoned three times by the DCI to appear and shed light on the matter but he refused and evaded police until he was traced and arrested.
The detective said he needed time to locate the parents of the deceased and record their statements on the incident.
