A Form Four student from Gathiruini Boys High School was last night beaten to death after sneaking into Komothai Girls Secondary School in Kiambu County.
A police report filed at Kibichoi Police Station indicates that the boy was among a group of six boys who sneaked into the neighbouring girls’ school at around 4am Thursday.
The targeted girls raised alarm attracting the attention of the school’s guards, teacher on duty and principal.
The six boys took to their heels after smelling danger.
However, the 17-year-old boy couldn’t catch up with his peers who managed to escape to safety.
A mob comprising of students and members of staff descended on the deceased with crude weapons, blows and kicks inflicting serious injuries on him.
“The teenager was beaten by the students and staff and sustained physical injuries on the head and forehead,” the report read.
He was rushed to Kigumo Level IV Hospital in an unconscious state. He, unfortunately, succumbed to his injuries while receiving treatment at the facility.
The body of the deceased was moved to Kigumo mortuary pending autopsy. Meanwhile, police have launched a probe into the killing.
