Two men were arrested on Sunday for kidnapping after they demanded Sh10 million to release a USIU student they had lured to their trap online.
The men were arrested in Githurai Kizito area, Nairobi after being trailed to a house where they kept the 27 year-old student since Wednesday.
The kidnappers had posed as businessmen who claimed they were ready to boost her to start a business.
Police said Rono and the kidnappers exchanged contacts and agreed to meet.
“The kidnappers sent a taxi to pick her from Imara Daima to a place they were to meet but later turned against her,” police said.
The car used to ferry the kidnap victim from Imara Daima was also seized during a police operation targeting the criminals.
