A woman and her boyfriend are expected in court today over the abduction of their friend in Kayole, Nairobi two weeks ago.

Hafsa Ahmed Abdi and her boyfriend Jackson Njogu will be produced in court where police plan to seek days to detain them over the kidnap of her friend Hafsa Mohamed Lukman, 23.

She was kidnapped on June 15 and rescued five days later. Police said the two, Hafsa and Njogu were traced to a lodging at the Flyover Junction in Kinangop where they were hiding since Lukman was rescued from a house in Matopeni, Kayole.

The two, according to police were suspects in the kidnap of Lukman who was tortured as her kidnappers demanded Sh5 million ransom before she was rescued on June 20.

This now increases to three, the number of suspects held over the kidnap that shocked many given the torture meted on Lukman.

Police have since revealed abductors of Lukman lured her with a business deal to supply watermelons, and then demanded a Sh5 million ransom. 

Hafsa runs a watermelons business in Kayole.

She has been getting the fruits from Bura and Garissa. Lukman was rescued from a house where she had been kept captive in a broken water tank.
