Locals said the two had been seen together on numerous occasions chewing Miraa. They used to spend time at a local hotel before moving to the residence.
Tecra allegedly fell from the staircase on the fateful day. She was rushed to a local hospital but her situation did not improve.
On April 23, she was taken to the Manda Airstrip where she was airlifted to Nairobi.
Detectives from the DCI, Homicide Department will question her boyfriend to shed more light on what led to the accident.
“We’ve launched investigations into the incident. We’re told the lady fell from the staircase of the house she was living with a boyfriend here in Lamu. We’ve already arrested the man to assist in the investigations,” an officer told a local daily.
It has been rumored that Omar is a man of questionable character who likes blackmailing rich women.
