NAIROBI, Kenya, Jun 7- Detectives from the office of the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) have rescued a 4-year-old child who had been abducted in Murang’a.

Detectives said they rescued baby Liam Ngucwa Mwangi who is said to have been kidnapped by a houseboy who worked for his grandparents in Naivasha.

In a statement, the DCI said detectives are now pursuing Liam’s captors, who escaped narrowly moments before the rescue.

“Today’s rescue followed a meticulous mission, executed by detectives from the Crime Research & Intelligence Bureau, augmented by their Special Service Unit counterparts. Meanwhile, detectives are pursuing baby Liam’s captors, who escaped narrowly moments before the rescue,” DCI stated.

Cases of child kidnapping have been on the increase lately, with some ending in murder.

Two weeks ago, a 13-year-old schoolgirl was kidnapped in Kitengela by people who demanded ransom from her mother but they later killed her.

Two of the kidnappers were later arrested and arraigned in court.
