A Form two girl has been rescued from a gang of men that abducted and defiled her for one week.
The student of a secondary school in Ndhiwa Sub-County, Homa-Bay County was rescued in an operation conducted by Kanyach-Kachar Location Chief Bernard Omuga. Omuga conducted the operation in collaboration with police officers from Marindi Police Post on Tuesday evening.
Police arrested three suspects including the bodaboda rider, his brother and their mother.
The 15-year-old girl found herself in hands of three men who had her carnal knowledge since Tuesday last week.
The student is currently traumatized after undergoing the ordeal.
She met the tribulation when she was traveling to school from her parents’ home in Central Kwabwai Location, Ndhiwa on Tuesday afternoon last week.
According to her parents, the girl left home at about 2pm for school.
Upon reaching Rodi-Kopany which is about 23 kilometres away, she alighted from a public service vehicle and boarded a motorbike to take her to school.
But she never reached the school. The bodaboda rider diverted the journey to his rental house at Pala trading centre in Homa Bay Sub-County.
At the rider’s door, the minor met the bodaboda rider’s brother and another man who forced her into the house.
She was put under a strict surveillance by the three men not to leave the house in which the men reportedly defiled her at any time of their wish.
“My daughter was in school uniform when she left home because she boards in the school. I don’t know how she was surviving in her dressing,” Achieng’ said.
Achieng’ said that her daughter hinted to her that all the three men defiled her one after another on daily basis.
“My daughter has undergone a serious problem in hands of the men. They have caused a serious damage to her and we are still waiting for medical reports from health practitioners,” Achieng’ said at Homa Bay County referral hospital yesterday.
Mr Ayoo said the abductors ended up robbing his daughter of Sh5,000 he had given her to take to school.
“School fees was Sh4,000 and the remaining was for her personal use. But they took the money and gave their mother to spend in feeding the family before the mother returned to us Sh2,000 later through police,” said Ayoo.
Omuga said the mother was arrested because she was found in possession of the money that was snatched from the student.
The suspects were detained at Homa Bay Police Station before being taken to Homa Bay County hospital alongside the minor for medical examination.
