Sleuths from the DCI havr arrested the two main suspects behind the kidnapping and torture of Hafsa Mohamed Lukman, the Kamukunji based businesswoman who was kidnapped on June 15.
The detectives, working undercover, arrested the two lovebirds at the crack of dawn.
The team of detectives included Crime Research & Intelligence Bureau, backed up by their Special Service Unit counterparts. They picked Jackson Njogu, 24 and Hafsa Abdi, 21, as they slept at Crystal view lodge in Kinangop.
The two lovers who masterminded the kidnapping of Hafsa from her shop, managed to siphon a total of Sh650,000 from the victim’s bank accounts while she was in captivity. They then escaped to Kinangop and purchased a bar, which they were operating.
Hafsa was found by detectives last Sunday, at a dingy room in Matopeni area in Kayole,where she had been forced to stay inside an empty water tank. The two kidnappers had demanded a ransom of Sh5 million in order to set Hafsa free. However, when the ransom wasn’t delivered, they opted to flee from our detectives who were closing in on them.
The suspects were smoked out of room number 8 at Crystal view lodge, where they had been using as their hideout all this while.
