Five suspects are set to be arraigned in court on Tuesday for allegedly kidnapping and gang-raping a 13-year-old girl in Hola, Tana River County.

The five suspects; Said Omar, Galgalo Athumani, Athumani Mohamed, Yasir Mohamed and Dero Juma were arrested on Monday in Hola.

Two others are still at large and being pursued by police over the crime which was reportedly committed on Sunday night in Laini area, about 40km from Hola Town.

The suspects reportedly kidnapped the minor at their home when she came out of the house in the middle of the night to relieve herself.

They then hauled her onto a waiting motorcycle to a nearby bush where they gang-raped her while holding her hands and legs apart and covering her mouth using a piece of cloth to prevent her from screaming.

Meanwhile, the girl is undergoing treatment including counselling.

“The 13-year-old victim is currently undergoing treatment-including counseling & other necessary support that she requires, at a Hospital in Tana River,” said the DCI.
