Nairobi’s street children were the unlikely law enforcers after carrying out a citizen’s arrest of a man who was dumping a body of a woman in Nairobi River Wednesday, September 7.

Patrick Muriuki was spotted by street urchins at a riverside around Kamukunji area as he offloaded the body which was wrapped in a sack from a handcart.

The suspect tried to flee but the street kids caught up with him and arrested him, before alerting police at Kamukunji police station.

The man’s accomplice escaped.

Police believe that the woman was murdered elsewhere. They have also established her identity.

Police are holding Mr Muriuki for further investigations.
