Kidnapped baby rescued

A nine-month-old baby who had been kidnapped from her parents’ home in Ruai on Monday was on Thursday found in Kiambu.

The main suspect in the kidnapping had been living with the family for two months.

The baby was found at a house in Riara in Kiambu by police who had launched a manhunt for the woman.

“Police arrested the suspect together with a man who had fake Administration Police uniform” said Kayole Police Commander Samuel Mukinda.

He said the two had been demanding a ransom of Sh1 million failure to which they had threatened to kill the infant.

The two suspects are being held at the Kayole Police station and are expected to appear in court Friday to answer to the charge of abduction.

Cases of baby abduction have been on the increase in Nairobi in recent months.
