A police officer was on Tuesday, January 4 nabbed for defiling an inmate at Kigumo Police Station in Murang’a County.

In a police report, the officer identified as Letingis Lentirangoi defiled the minor on December 31 and January 1.

“Please be informed that Police Constable Letingis Lentirangoi, a police officer stationed at Muthithi Police Station was arrested following defilement complaints," a report filed at Kigumo Police Station read in part.

The victim told the police that the suspect took her to an adjacent office and forcefully defiled her.

She said that she did not want to talk about what happened as she was in fear of being victimized by the officers at the station.

However, she revealed to the Officer Commanding Station Muthithi Police Station on the night of January 1, who facilitated her medical check-up at a nearby hospital.

A detective privy to the ongoing investigations attached to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) told K24 Digital that investigations into the matter had already been concluded.

“A report was filed, and the lady was taken for medical checkup. All this will be produced in court when the suspect is arraigned,” the detective said.

It has also been established that the Independent Policing Oversight Authority (IPOA) is investigating the matter.
