GSU officer identified as Bernard Kipngetich Sang alias Collins, is accused of luring the minor, a student at Mwigito Excel Secondary school whom he took to a lodging at Neissuit market where he detained and defiled her for four days.

Nakuru Police Commander Hassan Barua has said the minor, 17, was reported missing on November 10 and would later resurface on November 14.

“We are holding a GSU officer in our cells after he allegedly lured a form three student and took her to a lodging and defiled her for four days,” said Barua.

“The mother informed police of the missing student, and we together kept seeking her whereabouts. She would later report back home and revealed that she was with the GSU officer,” said Barua.
