Five suspects accused of kidnapping and gang-raping a 13-year-old girl in Hola, Tana River County will remain in custody for a month.

The five; Said Omar, Galgalo Athumani, Athumani Mohamed, Yasir Mohamed and Dero Juma, who were arraigned at Hola law courts, were detained after the Prosecution applied for their bond terms to be deferred until the complainant has testified.

While citing interference, Prosecution further told the court of possible interference with ongoing investigation if the suspects are released on bond since they hail from the same village as the complainant.
