According to witnesses, Kipkorir and his colleagues had quarrelled over the proceeds of their diving.
On a good day, each member of the group, which comprises eight members, goes home with at least Sh2,000.
Mr Kisia said the decision to suspend diving was aimed at curbing more deaths as security measures are put in place.
Baringo County Police Commander Peter Ndung'u said investigations into the latest incident had already been launched.
