Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) are investigating an online cartel that has allegedly been luring high school girls from their homes for partying orgies that goes on for days.
In a statement issued on Saturday, the DCI said preliminary investigations established that the girls were lured out of their homes through a social media account named Carty-gang-ent.
“The cartel has been using internationally-registered telephone numbers, although they operate from Nairobi,” said the DCI.
According to the DCI, the number of worried parents from Nairobi’s Kayole and Komarock estates reported that their daughters had gone missing from home for days.
“The parents only reported their daughters were missing after they failed to go home several days later,” the DCI revealed.
During interrogation by detectives attached to DCI’s Anti-Human Trafficking and Child Protection Unit and the Crime Research and Intelligence Bureau, the young girls are reported to have revealed how they were lured from their home and linked up in partying joints in Nairobi.
“The DCI wishes to inform the public that we are hunting down members of the cartel and they’ll be apprehended to answer for their crimes. The DCI further warns parents to take keen interest in their children’s activities at home and on social media networks,” cautioned the DCI.
