- The deceased and five of his schoolmates forced their way into the girls’ school.

Tree guards from Komothai Girls Secondary School have been arrested in connection to the killing of a Form Four student from the neighbouring Gathiruini Boys Secondary School in Kiambu County.
The three suspects are set to appear in court on Tuesday.
Detectives from Kiambu Police Headquarters have already recorded statements from the students over the unfortunate incident.
According to DCI, the 17-year-old student together with five others had on Wednesday night sneaked out of their school and crept into a girls dormitory at Komothai Girls Secondary School.
Events leading to student’s death
“They had under the cover of darkness tiptoed into Phoeb House for an unknown mission, before they were spotted by some girls who immediately raised alarm, attracting the whole school,” says the DCI.
After hearing screams from the dormitory, the school guards, teachers and students all rushed towards the dormitory to find out what was happening.
On sensing danger, five of the boys managed to trace their way back to their school while the deceased was cornered by the angry students and staff.
“Sadly, they descended on him causing him life threatening injuries. The boy later succumbed to his injuries at Kigumo Level IV Hospital.”
Crime scene detectives visited the scene and recovered planks of wood suspected to have been used to assault the suspect.
The sleuths are still searching for five boys who escaped after the deceased was cornered that night.
