The man had reportedly gone to visit a cousin who works in the building, before killing himself. It is unclear what transpired between the two prompting the decision.

Central OCPD Paul Wanjama confirmed the decision but refused to release the name of the deceased saying family members had not been informed.

The incident caused a scene with a small crowd surrounding the area and taking photos.
