Police in Nairobi,Kenya are holding a 32-year-old man for allegedly sodomising a 4-year-old boy.
Samuel Agesa, a bodaboda operator in the city, was arrested after a complaint filed by the minor’s teacher at Parklands Police Station.
In a statement on Thursday, June 23, 2022, the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) said the PP1 teacher got concerned after noticing that the boy was in severe pain.
After interrogation, the child recounted to the teacher how his mother’s boyfriend would engage him in the unnatural act whenever the parent was away.
The mother, Irene Nduku, 30, was also arrested and is cooling her heels in police custody alongside her boyfriend as investigations into the incident continue.
“The two are currently in custody at Parklands police station as detectives finalize their investigations and drafting of appropriate charges, to have them arraigned in court,” DCI said.
Meanwhile, the boy was rushed to a city hospital for treatment.
DCI said the minor is in a serious condition.
