Teenage girls who went missing after being lured by men in Nairobi found
Four of the seven teenagers who went missing one week ago after they were lured by a job advert have been found.
The three girls were found at the Nairobi Central Business District and taken to the Nairobi Central Police Station.
The girls who are still in High School are suspected to have eloped with men after they were lured by a job advert.
Sospeter Kimani whose daughter also went missing says that the girls have been sharing videos and audios while drunk with men.
“We want to know these men that have been with them. Because the videos showed them drunk and saying how men really have money,” stated Kimani.
Kimani says that the three girls were found after they sent an alert to the police and shared their images just in case they were spotted.
“We were lucky because these three girls were spotted by police officers while roaming in town and taken to the police station,” he said.
The girls have been taken by officers based at the South C Child protection Unit for further interrogations.
In a post shared on twitter, the DCI revealed that the child protection Unit had managed to rescue the three girls adding that efforts to bring home the other four are underway.
“DCI’s Child Protection Unit detectives have rescued three girls suspected to be among the ones reported missing. Efforts are in place to trace and rescue the remaining girls.” read the tweet
The development came after a viral video posted on social media by a kin of one of the missing girls.
In the video, she said that her cousin and six other teenage girls had been lured from their homes by a caucasian male who had promised them lucrative auditions.
“My cousin and six others were lured from their home in the dead of the night by a man in the guise of auditions that would help them make money,” the lady said
On Saturday, the DCI revealed that the trafficking cartel operated within Nairobi despite having international phone numbers.
