A Maseno University lecturer in Kenya and his alleged girlfriend said to be a nurse, were found in a state of unconsciousness in his office in a case that has totally bewildered the police.
The Community Health lecturer was found foaming in the mouth inside his office in Kisumu. According to the reports of a security officer at the campus, the lecturer was seen entering his office around 11am, obviously in very high spirits.
When I was doing my normal security rounds, I found his door open and both of them unconscious. The woman had her trousers and underwear down at the knees.
Reported the security guard who raised the alarm prompting some of the lecturer’s colleagues to call the police.
The security guard had also found a syringe that was said to have contained contained Pethidine drug. The security guard said:
I found the lecturer leaning on his chair with his lips covered in a white substance. The woman was lying on the floor with foam in her mouth.
According to Dr Makokha of Alupe Hospital, Pethidine is used in the treatment of severe pain and “has been traditionally used during childbirth as its effects are short-lasting… it works on your nervous system and brain to reduce the way you feel pain. Pethidine can be taken by mouth as a tablet, but it is more usually given as an injection,” he explained.
The police took the couple to the university’s clinic for first aid. The lecturer recovered after 30 minutes while the woman came around after one and a half hours. She was however still dizzy. The two were later referred to a hospital near Kibuye Market. None of them allegedly reported at the hospital, with the woman choosing to rest inside the lecturer’s saloon car.
Kisumu County Police Commandant Nelson Njiri confirmed the incident and told The Nairobian that the woman was the lecturer’s girlfriend. But what baffled police were “four bottles of restricted Pethidine drugs, empty drug sachets and an empty soda bottle on the office floor. We took the tablets for analysis as we continue with our investigations,” said Njiri.
