Detectives based in Kitutu Central, Kisii county, today witnessed a moment of joy and happiness as tears flowed freely from Zainab Hussein and her husband Ismael Hassan, after they were finally reunited with their son who was abducted five days ago.
Three year-old Ismael Hassan disappeared mysteriously, as he was playing with other children outside his grandmother’s house in Soko Mjinga village, Nyanchwa in Kisii. A Frantic search for the boy by his 60-year grandmother, parents and concerned neighbours yielded no fruits, prompting them to file a missing child’s report at Nyanchwa Police Station in Kitutu Central, Kisii county.
Detectives immediately swung into action and profiled a female suspect, with prior history of child trafficking. The cold-blooded suspect, 35-year-old Ruth Moraa, is believed to have previously abducted her daughter’s four year old child in February this year. With that information, detectives immediately launched a manhunt for Moraa.
After engaging detectives in a 5-day cat and mouse game, Moraa was finally cornered and smoked out of her hideout in Keumbu, where she had sought refuge at a relative’s house. Luckily, the frightened minor was also found in her custody.
Also arrested is Moraa’s uncle Elijah Onsongo and Teresia Onsongo, who detectives believe are part of a wider child racketeering syndicate, within the south Nyanza region. The suspects will face Human Trafficking charges
