According to reports, unknown robbers suspected to be part of gang currently terrorizing residents made their way into IGM and committed the heinous act.
The first eyes witnesses were shocked to find the church open and body of Maasai watchman lying lifeless within the compound.
The burglars also got away with two speakers, one piano, power amplifier, mixer, among other expensive valuables.
Many, including church members, have condemned the incident terming it a total disrespect to the house of God.
“Robbing and killing in church premise …May God deal with the culprits,” posted Carol David, renowned Gospel singer and Worship Leader at IGM.
