My two sons were abducted using dark powers

A father from Homa Bay county is claiming that his two sons, who have since been found, were abducted using dark powers on October 16. 

John Isaac says his family has undergone psychological torture for far much longer than the time the kidnapper held his sons hostage at an unknown place.

 The boys aged 14 and 12  were kidnapped by a man known as Petro and whom Isaac claims lured them away from the village using a bottle containing black powder.

The children were home alone at home that day.

 Isaac and the other family members had gone for prayers at a local church.

Witnesses in the village only saw the man standing with the children a few metres away from their compound at Kaluoch Village in Rachuonyo South-Sub county.   

The minors trekked from the village before they were ferried away on a boda boda towards Kendu Bay town in neighbouring Rachuonyo North Sub-county.

“We expected them to return home after a few hours but their absence prompted us to enquire their whereabouts in the village.

“Residents, however, said the children had not been spotted anywhere in the village after being seen with Petro on the motorbike,” recalled Isaac.

The few people who know Petro said he comes from the neighbouring Rachuonyo East Sub-county but they neither know his home nor village. Nobody knows what he does for a living, either.

The children were finally found at Aros trading centre in Rachuonyo North Sub-county last Sunday, in good health but confused.

“My elder son said he could not understand how they found themselves at Aros. Instead, both of them were crying like mourners,” Isaac said, adding “we have had sleepless nights but we can now breathe a sigh of relief.”  

Rachuonyo South Sub-county Police Commander Lilies Wachira confirmed the incident.

“It raises a lot of concern for children of such ages to go missing. People may keep quiet yet someone is planting a bad spirit in their minds.

“We had to put the minors under interrogation to find out exactly where they were and what they were doing during the abduction,” the police boss said.
