However, the officer, identified as Private Constable John Ouko did not lead the 20-year-old to the police station. Instead, the young man was led to the house of the police officer where he was assaulted physically.
Chege Kikuyu, a 20-year-old student at Eldoret National Polytechnic was then given 200 Kenya shillings by the officer. He threatened him further action if he dared tell anyone what had happened.
The brave student however, went ahead and reported the matter to the police station and the officer was arrested. The student was taken to Moi Teaching and Refferal Hospital for a medical examination as investigations into the offence starts.
