Kilifi police confirm

A police report seen by K24 Digital indicates that the girl,17, obtained the device from the Form One boy who schools at Kizurini Secondary.

The girl was found in possession of the tablet at around 4:00 pm.

She told the police that the boyfriend had instructed her to watch the videos, in 'preparation' for their next meeting after schools closed.

"The girl revealed to her teachers that, the tablet that she had carried to school belonged to her 18-year-old boyfriend who had offered it to her to watch pornographic materials. The teachers informed the area chief who intervened and alerted police officers," part of the police report reads.

"Upon interrogation, the boy confessed to having stolen it (tablet) from Mitsikitsini primary school. The tablet was full of pornography, " the police report further reads.

The suspects are being held by police in Kaloleni as investigations into the incident continue.

This is not the first time minors have been busted with adult content.

In July 2019, at least 50 teenage boys drawn from different schools in Nakuru and Nandi counties were nabbed while watching pornographic videos at an entertainment joint in Nakuru Town.

Police said the students were also found smoking bhang.

The learners, who had been released from school to go home for the August holidays, were arrested after a neighbour, where the entertainment spot is located, grew suspicious when tens of boys in school uniforms continued to flock to the joint.

Nakuru Town East lead enforcement officer, James Kinanga, said the students had visited the joint under the pretence that they were video game customers.

The suspects were drawn from Nakuru Boys’ High School, Meteitei Boys’ School, Londiani Boys’ High School, Kapsabet Boys’ School, Menengai High School and Molo Academy.

The crackdown resulted in the arrest of three people who were found operating the video games business.
