It has emerged that the duo, used stupefying drugs on the lady at a bar known as Monte Christo before she was dragged to the hotel room.
“Detectives have established that the first-year student had walked into the bar earlier in the day accompanied by her boyfriend and the two suspects. Her boyfriend is known to the suspects,” a statement by Kinoti read in part.
In the process, the two suspects ordered rounds and rounds of alcohol for the boyfriend which left him helpless.
The boyfriend unable to comprehend what was happening left his girlfriend in the hands of the duo who had a completely different plan.
“Orwa and Mulama then seized the opportunity and dragged the victim to the room where they inhumanly raped her in turns,” he said.
According to Kinoti, police got a tip-off from members of the public that two men had been spotted drugging the lady into a room as she was so drunk and could not support herself.
