Three women from Nyeri County have stunned Kenyans with their spiking drinks wit after a seminarian became their latest ‘client’ over the Easter holiday.
The man of the cloth is said to have invited two of the women Caroline Kariuki and Caroline Wanjiku to his house in Skuta Estate, Nyeri County and also invited another male friend on Saturday evening.
He was set on making merry and prepared everything unknown to him that he was dating trouble as the two women are thugs who have mastered the art of robbing men by spiking their drinks.
After an eventful night, the seminarian got a shock on his life after waking up to a nearly empty house yet all he recalls was having fun with the two women while his house was full.
It is then that he realized he had been drugged and robbed. The two women worked in cahoots with his male friend and left the house before he woke up from his stupor.
But the proverbial 40 days for a thief quickly caught up with the villains who were arrested at 3 am, clearly in violation of the dusk to dawn curfew.
It is upon interrogation that police unraveled their scheme.
“They were interrogated and some drugs, documents, cell phones and other items they could not account for were recovered. Reports had earlier been made by people who said they had been drugged. On further interrogation, we realised the women were behind the spiking of drinks in bars,” Nyeri Central Sub-County Police Commander Paul Kuria stated.
A third woman, Rita Achieng Okuto who works with the two women was arrested and police recovered stolen items among them mobile phones, ATM cars and sleep-inducing tablets Stilnox.
It is these pills that they used to drug the seminarian and stupefied him into deep sleep.
Police say the three women are part of a gang that has been terrorizing revellers in Nyeri Town.
The three suspects hail Kayole and one from Murang’a.
They suspects sell the stolen items through online selling platforms.
