The Directorate Of Criminal Investigation (DCI) through a statement posted on X formally known as Twitter revealed that they have rescued two University students who went missing on October 27, 2023.11.
According to them, the duo was lured to their kidnappers by a female suspect and afterward locked up at an Airbnb at Elgon View apartments in Kitengela, Machakos County.
The DCI said that they were held hostage by two males and now the key arrested suspects who were demanding Ksh.6 Million ransom from their parents.
“Two male suspects who held them hostage while demanding Sh6 million ransom from their parents have also been arrested in the operation led by DCI’s Crime Research and Intelligence Bureau detectives.”
The DCI has said that they believe the two suspects identified as Brian Omoso-25 and Humphrey Hinga-22 worked jointly with the lady Debbie Zablon to lure the two into a meeting at a common venue in Nairobi where the abduction took place.
“The suspects, Brian Ombasa Omoso, 25, and Humphrey Hinga, 22 who have since been ushered into our cells are believed to have been working jointly with the female dangerous damsel on the loose to identify and lure targeted victims, in their no-sweat approach to soft life. The lady who identified herself to the victims as Debbie Zablon separately lured the duo for a meet-up at a common venue in Nairobi, and just like the biblical Samson in Delilah’s arms, surrendered the 21-year-olds to her accomplices.” The tweet read.
In their investigations, the DCI discovered several items that are believed to have been used in the kidnapping of the two young men
“An imitation of a pistol, a dagger, subscriber sim cards used to contact the parents, fake front and rear car registration plates (KDD 881M) believed to have been used during their transportation, and assorted tools were also recovered from the hostage room.” the DCI noted.
The malnourished young men have now reunited with their parents after the traumatizing incident.
