Below is the full story:
Two women who were abducted a week ago were rescued yesterday, following an operation conducted by a joint team of sleuths drawn from the Crime Research & Intelligence Bureau and the Operations branch.
Erica Gachoka, 26 daughter of media personality Ciku Muiruri and her friend Shanice Agose, 27 went missing on June 4, after attending a house party in Nairobi’s Westlands area.
After the party, the two requested a ride to Kilimani, via the bolt taxi application. But when the ride arrived along Rhapta road in Westlands and they got in, the driver threatened them using a hammer before speeding off towards Thika.
Investigations into the abduction were immediately launched as the detectives trailed the suspects who operated between Nairobi, Thika, Ruiru and Witeithie in Kiambu County. The abductors demanded for a ransom of Sh250,000 from each of the two, in order to release them.
Yesterday, the officers raided a house in Ngoigwa area in Thika, where two suspects Timothy Kiragu, 34 and Samuel Kipkurui, 33 were arrested. After a brief interview, the duo led detectives to Gatukuyu in Mang’u, Kiambu County, where the two women were rescued.
Assorted crude weapons and fake motor vehicle number plates were recovered from the suspects.
Meanwhile, the visibly weak and shaken victims who were found in a one-roomed house where they had been locked up have since been reunited with their families.
