The office of the Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) was forced to take action on Friday after a viral video featured a man being tortured for reportedly revealing secrets about one of the assailants.

According to DCI statement, four of the assailants Robert Momanyi, Collins Neriko, Stanley Rimbere and Stephen Kimeu were arrested and taken to Kilimani Police Station while officers launched a manhunt for three more suspects.

One of the suspects is a politician and worked at the Kiambu County Government before he was sacked.

In the video, the victim identified as Kelvin Mango Oduor is seen been beaten repeatedly with a rubber weep before being kicked on the head causing injuries on his face and various other parts of the body.

The assault reportedly began at 4pm on Wednesday and was carried on until Thursday 5 in the morning reason being he had ruined people’s relationships and their business choices by revealing their secrets.

It all started when his friend Robert called him asking Oduor to accompany him to a hangout joint without offering clear details.

When they got out, Robert changed the plans and asked the soft-spoken victim to accompany him to a house in Kilimani so he could greet his friends.

“In the process, he told me to go and say hi to his friends and wanted to pick something. He entered the house and I waited for him outside then again they came for me outside.

“They told me to get in and say hi. After that is when I got beaten,” he narrated.

The assault caused an outcry on social media with many users asking the authorities to take immediate action and bring the assailants to book and help Oduor access better medical care.

“No bail please and convict them for attempted murder,” declared one user.

“Thank God, I really was disgusted and resentful of the idea that people can do such harm to another citizen and get away with it. I’m at ease with this result and hope they shall be punished to the fullest extent of the law,” posted another one. See video below.
