Five Suspects Charged to Court for Kidnap and Demand for Ransom

Detectives in Kenya have caught five suspects among them three women for kidnapping a man and seeking a ransom to set him free. The suspects have been processed to answer to robbery with violence in court today.

Following an operation from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations agents on Monday, detectives stormed a house where one of the victims was being held incommunicado.

The officers found the victim stark naked, as the five suspects waited for an Mpesa transaction of Sh100,000 to set the man free.

“The man had called his relatives claiming that he had been involved in a road accident and needed Sh100,000 for treatment. The special agents who had followed cyber forensic leads to the house where the victim was being held, connected the crime to an incident that occurred last month, where a man was accosted in Parklands and robbed off Sh450,000,” the DCI said Friday.

The agency said the women ensnare the men after a promise of offering them sexual favours.

“In a well-choreographed plan, the three damsels who were arrested prey for men online, promising them blissful moments with a happy ending and the wowed men easily fall into the trap hook, line and sinker,” the DCI said Friday.

The DCI said that the suspects mostly target men of Caucasian origin whom they would bait to a house behind Ruaraka’s Naivas supermarket, with a promise of giving offering them a ‘good time’

“But moments before they get down, a rude knock suddenly interrupts the occasion as a man posing as a boyfriend to one of the women suddenly appears, throwing a spanner in the works of an eventful evening,” the DCI added.

Police have identified the victims as Vigilance Mumbi, Joseph Makau Mulatya, Patrick Wekesa Omosa, Rehema Njeri, and Hadija Ong’ai.
