They were threatened by the Sonko and Wangunjiri imposters to give money or be killed. They had lost over Sh1 million to the three fraudsters when the man decided the solution was to kill the real Wangunjiri.
“When I got wind of the extortionists using my name I urged the victim family to report to police.
