Abductors demanded ransom

The abductors demanded for a ransom of Sh250,000 from each of the two, in order to release them.

Police say that Erica and her friend Shanice had attended a house party in Nairobi’s Westlands area when the abduction happened.

“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,” said the DCI.

Investigations into the abduction were immediately launched as the detectives trailed the suspects who operated between Nairobi, Thika, Ruiru and Witeithie in Kiambu County.
