Police have launched investigations in Kiambu County following the death of a Form Four student.
The 17-year-old student from Gathiruini Boys’ Secondary School was beaten to death by girls from a neighbouring school.
According to DCI boss George Kinoti, the student alongside five sneaked out of their school and crept into a dormitory at Komothai Girls Secondary School on Thursday morning.
“They had tiptoed into Phoebe House for an unknown mission before they were spotted by some girls who immediately raised alarm, attracting the whole school. The other five boys managed to trace their way back to their school while the deceased was cornered by the angry students and staff and beaten,” Kinoti said.
The deceased passed away at a local hospital due to the injuries he sustained.
The body was transferred to a local mortuary awaiting autopsy.
Kinoti has since termed killing a crime and warned the public of such acts.
