Here is the full DCI statement on the incident:

Ten KCSE students from Anestar Bahati Boys in Nakuru, are in custody after they broke into a girl’s dormitory in the nearby Anestar Precious Girls secondary school. The boys whose mission still remains unclear, had sneaked out of their school in their numbers and gained access to the girls’ dormitory under the cover of darkness.

However, officers from Githioro Police Station responded swiftly and rushed to the school after the girls raised alarm. But not even the arrival of our men would scare away the defiant boys who kept hovering around the dormitory forcing one of the officers to fire a round in the air to scare them away.

Officers managed to arrest 10 of them, as others escaped in the dead of the night. The arrested were placed in custody at Dundori Patrol Base, pending further action.
