Police in Busia County are probing an incident where a police officer allegedly assaulted a high school student.
The Form 3 learner at St. Nicholas Hafumbre Secondary School in Ukwala, Siaya County, said he sustained injuries on his manhood following the assault. The officer attached to Siport Post in Funyula Constituency reportedly confronted the boy when he was going to buy a bar of soap at 7:30 pm Wednesday.
It’s unclear which offense the 19-year-old committed, but the assault left him hospitalised at Busia County Referral Hospital.
The boy’s mother Jane Akinyi said her son had to undergo a surgical operation. Doctors said it would take a significant time for the teenager to be able to engage in sexual activity.
Ms Akinyi is now calling on Busia County police boss Jacob Narengo to arrest the rogue officer.
According to unconfirmed reports, Siport officers fear apprehending the suspect who residents claim has been terrorising them.
