Man suspected of defiling his 6-year-old daughter arrested in Kisii
A man who is suspected of defiling his 6-year-old daughter a week ago in Megogo village, Marani, Kisii County, was on Sunday afternoon arrested.
According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), the incident outraged many Kenyans after photos of the minor’s blood-soaked clothes were shared on social media.
“Julius Ogamba Ongera is alleged to have lured her daughter into a thicket where he committed the beastly act. Ongera went ahead to threaten his wife with dire consequences, if she dared to report the matter to Police,” the DCI said on Twitter.
However, after the minor’s condition worsened, she was rushed to Marani Sub-County hospital by her mother, where inquisitive nurses found out that she had been defiled and immediately alerted DCI officers.
The suspect is reported to have gone into hiding after detectives launched a manhunt for him.
On Sunday, detectives from the Crime Research and Intelligence Bureau and their Kisii counterparts arrested the suspect at his hideout within Kongasis, Kiambogo in Nakuru County.
He will be arraigned in court on Monday.
“DCI remains indebted to members of the public who have continued to partner with us in pursuit of justice for victims of crime. Should you have any information that maybe of assistance to a victim of crime, please reach out on 0800722203,” the DCI said.
