She was forced to fit in a water tank by her abductors – DCI give chilling details after rescuing the abducted Eastleigh lady in Kayole.



Hafsa Mohamed Lukman the Kamukunji based businesswoman who disappeared on June 15, has finally been rescued by detectives, from her captors. 

The 23-year-old woman was found in a dingy room in Matopeni, within Kayole, where she had been forced to fit in a water tank. (Pictured).

Hafsa who was last seen at her clothing shop was kidnapped by a criminal gang, that demanded a ransom of Sh5 million, in exchange for her freedom.

 In a heart-rending video clip recorded by the kidnappers after her disappearance, Hafsa who appeared tortured, begged her family to meet the demands of her tormentors, for her life to be spared.

Following an elaborate operation conducted by detectives from Crime Research & Intelligence Bureau and the Special Service Unit, Hafsa was rescued today morning.

The badly shaken woman who had visible bruises on her face and hands were immediately rushed to the hospital for medical attention. 

One 24-year-old suspect who is part of the gang that kidnapped Hafsa was arrested and is currently being interviewed by detectives to shed more light on the kidnapping & help in the arrest of his fellow miscreants.

The Directorate of Criminal Investigations is issuing a stern warning to any persons harbouring the intention of committing such a heinous crime, that no efforts shall be spared in their pursuit.

We thank the members of the public who volunteered information through our #FichuakwaDCI hotline, leading to the rescue of the businesswoman.
