An AK 47 rifle loaded with 26 rounds of ammunition was today recovered after a Toyota Probox enroute to Moyale from Marsabit was intercepted by officers.
24-year-old Rob Diba Dabasa (the lone driver) was also arrested, having chambered one of the rounds in readiness to fire. Suspect placed in custody pending arraignment, with the recoveries including the motor vehicle Reg. No. KCY 331V being secured as exhibit.
Meanwhile a 48-Year-Old man reported to have defiled his 7-year-old step-daughter on Tuesday night in Nyeri's Nairutia area was yesterday arrested by Nyeri-based detectives. The suspect, a casual labourer at Nairutia centre, is said to have savagely dealt with the vulnerable minor when her mother was away, after which he left her helpless the following morning and went to his workplace.
As detectives have since established, the suspect resides in a two bedroom house with his wife and the victim, with the three sharing one of the bedrooms and a common bed, leaving the other room unoccupied. In company of two female neighbours in whose home the girl had sought refuge, the grade one pupil narrated her ordeal to the shock of Gender Desk officers, moments before the suspect was traced and nabbed.The victim has since been given medical attention, and the clothes worn on the fateful night secured for forensic examination.
The DCI thanks the said responsible neighbours for their assistance and sensitivity with which they handled the delicate case, and urges continued cooperation with the public in keeping our children safe.
