DCI Raids Nairobi Estate at Night, Detains 44 School Children


  • The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) detectives on Saturday night, November 22, carried out an operation that saw 44 school children detained and their host arrested.

    The children, aged between 14 and 17, were allegedly found at Millicent Kithinji’s residence within Nairobi’s Mountain View Estate.

    Police reportedly seized different brands of alcohol and bhang after searching the house.

    The DCI stated that the primary and high school children; 26 boys and 18 girls, came from different counties.

    “Preliminary investigations revealed the children were from Nairobi, Kiambu and Machakos counties,” read part of the DCI statement.

    This posed a question as to how the children were able to sneak from their parent’s house without raising suspicion and travel that far to the Nairobi Estate.

    The 41-year-old host was being interrogated by the police officers to establish the reason for hosting the children and the means through which they got to her house.

    This operation comes just 48 hours after seven teenagers went missing after they were allegedly lured by a job advert on movie casting roles. 

    Fortunately, The DCI detectives managed to rescue three girls suspected to be among the ones reported missing.

    The police officers acknowledged that investigations were ongoing to rescue the remaining girls and also uncover the cartels that are luring the young girls.

    Previously, the DCI had issued a stern warning to the perpetrators for taking advantage of the young children during the Covid-19 pandemic period.

    “We wish to issue a stern warning to individuals taking advantage of the Covid-19 pandemic to prey on school girls who are at home, especially through the social media networks, that their days are numbered,” DCI tweeted.

     He further urged the parents to monitor their children’s activities at home and on the social media networks.
