An 18-year-old male student had his plans of meeting his girlfriend at a secondary school in Nyeri County on Monday night, November 21 go up in smoke, as learners prepare to sit for their national examinations scheduled for November 28, 2022.

The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) revealed on Tuesday, November 22 that the student was caught red-handed by other girls at the school who raised alarm.

To make matters worse, their screams ruined his subsequent efforts to locate his girlfriend among them at their dormitory, which drew the attention of the school's principal.

"Frantic efforts by the restless young man to trace his girlfriend from a crowd of girls walking to their dormitory bore no fruits, as the shocked girls started screaming attracting the attention of the school’s guard and the principal.

"According to sources from the school in Karima location, the young man from Gatugi Day secondary school who was dressed in the girls’ school uniform from head to toe, joined a group of girls as they walked to their dormitories from their evening preps, minutes past 10 pm," stated the DCI in part.

The student then sought to know from one of them the whereabouts of a specific girl who however became suspicious since the voice sounded unfamiliar and husky.

This prompted her to have a closer look at the person making the inquiry, only for her to realise that the individual with a broad chest and hairy chin was a man dressed in their school uniform.

"She immediately started screaming prompting a cacophony of screams from the other girls, as they fled to different directions in bewilderment, almost causing a stampede. The school guard who heard the loud screams and scuffles as the scared girls scampered for dear life rushed towards the dormitories to find out what was happening," added the DCI.

On his way, the guard encounter a young man who had pulled his skirt above his knees gathering it in a single knot which he held with his left hand, as he sped off with long strides looking for an escape route. 

The guard immediately went after him and just before he jumped over the school perimeter, he pounced on his shoulders and pinned him on the ground, aborting his seemingly well-planned escape mission.

Police officers were alerted by the school principal and they responded immediately. The young man told the officers that he had been invited over by his girlfriend for some unspecified business, that the officers could not immediately establish.

However, three condoms, a mobile phone and a lighter were recovered from the student who had stuffed his chest with pieces of items of clothing, to create a false impression of a female bosom.

He was taken to Othaya police station where he is being processed for the offence of preparation to commit a felony.
