The man told police that it was his friend who advised him to do that to get money from his (suspect’s) mother.
The student told police that he bought the cow blood from a market in Awendo earlier on January 5 and stored it under his bed in a house located a few metres from that of his mother.
“Shortly after wishing his mother good night at 9pm and departing for his house, he made a sharp distress call. When his mother rushed to his house, she only found her son’s blood-soaked vest,” Awendo police boss Mathias Pombo said.
The following morning, the student’s mother went to the Awendo police post and filed a missing person’s report.
