A police officer based at Langas in Eldoret, Uasin Gishu County, has been arrested on suspicion that he sodomised a college student.
According to a police report filed at the Langas Police Station on Wednesday evening, July 14, the 20-year-old student identified claims that he was arrested by Police Constable John Ouko for failure to wear a mask.
However, instead of being taken into custody, the cop allegedly led the Eldoret National Polytechnic student to his house.
“PC John Ouko arrested him for not putting on mask and handcuffed him and diverted him into his room within police quarters and sodomized him. Thereafter, he gave him KSh200,” reads part of the police report.
The student claims that the police officer warned him against disclosing what had transpired, before releasing him without any charges.
He, however, filed a report immediately and the officer in question arrested.
The supposed victim has been taken to Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital for medical examination.
