Two suspects arrested on suspicion of kidnapping 14-year-old girl

Police in Kasarani are holding two men suspected to have kidnapped a 14-year-old girl who was traced to Nyahururu after disappearing from Nairobi.

The two suspects – Isaiah Wekesa Wafula and Elias Bundi Ntoribi – were arrested on Thursday evening in connection to the incident.

The victim is a form three student at a school in Othaya, Nyeri County.

Police constable Charles Aoma obtained orders to detain the suspects until Tuesday next week from Makadara Law Courts Chief Magistrate Heston Nyaga.

The officer said he is pursuing other accomplices and the two suspects are likely to interfere with his investigations if released.

Ntoribi said he had no idea why he was being linked to the case because the police arrested him at his workplace and took him to his house which they searched but did not take anything.
