Three Nigerians arrested in connection with missing teen

Three Nigerian nationals residing in Kenya were on Sunday arrested in connection with the disappearance of a 15-year-old school girl.

The three were nabbed by detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) at Courtyard Apartments within Rwaka, Kiambu County.

The foreigners were identified as Morah Stanley Apple, Boniface Nnamdi Nkachukwulu, and Godwin Ovoepeke.

The missing teenager is said to have been lured to the foreigners’ apartment on various occasions during the festive period.

“The minor’s distraught parents have been looking for their daughter in vain, only to realize that she had on various occasions been lured to the apartment where the three men reside,” the DCI said in a statement.

“Neighbors also reported to have seen the minor in the company of the three on diverse dates during the festive period.”

Neema Maisori, a 20-year-old Kenyan woman found in the company of the three Nigerian men was also arrested during the swoop. 

“Detectives are still looking for the minor, who was not in the house at the time the arrests were made,” the DCI added.
