Two suspects behind kidnapping of businesswoman Hafsa Lukman arrested


The Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI) detectives have arrested the main suspects behind the kidnapping and torture of Hafsa Mohamed Lukman, the Kamukunji based businesswoman who was kidnapped on June 15, 20121. 

According to DCI, undercover teams from the revered Crime Research and Intelligence Bureau, at the crack of dawn Sunday morning, backed up by their Special Service Unit counterparts, picked Jackson Njogu, 24 and Hafsa Abdi, 21, as they slept at Crystal view lodge in the chilly Kinangop area.

” 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.” Said the DCI

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. This morning was not their lucky day though. They were smoked out of room number 8 at Crystal view lodge, where they had imagined that our hawk-eyed detectives would never find them. DCI detectives shall spare no efforts in ensuring that every kidnapper who takes hostage innocent victims leaving their families in anguish, is arrested and made to account for their actions.” Added the DCI
