The suspect was taken to Konoin’s Mogogosiek Police Station awaiting arraignment over the heinous acts.


According to Konoin police Chief Tom Achiya, the suspect, Bernard Kirui, was apprehended after one of the minors complained of severe pain and was rushed to Litein Mission Hospital, where it was established that he had been sodomized.
