Baringo - A Kenya Defence Force (KDF) soldier who escaped the deadly attack at the El Adde camp in Somalia last Friday was murdered at his home in Baringo, according to reports.

Stanley Kipkolomi was killed on Monday night as he waited for his wife to open the door.

Kilokomi's daughter said she heard commotion outside as her father called her mother to open the door. The Star reported there were signs of a struggle.

Witnesses interviewed by Citizen TV said the soldier had stab wounds to his head and neck.

Police arrested his wife to help with investigations.

Kilokomi had just returned to the country for his leave, days before the al-Shabaab raided the El Adde camp in Somalia, killing dozens of his colleagues on Friday.

He had been deployed to Somalia in 2014.
