A man who defiled his 6-year-old daughter a week ago in Megogo Village, Marani, Kisii county, was yesterday arrested in the afternoon by detectives.
In an incident that 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. 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 the police.
The suspect immediately went into hiding after detectives launched his manhunt but his antics wouldn’t last for long. By afternoon, he was arrested by detectives from the Crime Research and Intelligence Bureau & their Kisii counterparts at his hideout in Kongasis, Kiambogo in Nakuru County. He will be arraigned in court today, to answer to his crimes.
DCI remains indebted to members of the public who have continued to partner with them in pursuit of justice for victims of crime.
