Police in Meru have busted a form three boy who faked his kidnapping and started demanding ransom for his ‘release’.

The lad is said to have colluded with others to fake his kidnapping and make calls to his parents and relatives for a ransom after which his ‘freedom’ could be secured.

Sleuths from the Directive of Criminal Investigations (DCI) said the boy caused suffering to his family noting that the family lives in poverty.

Detectives, however, busted the boy at Nkubu town where he is said to have been passing time waiting for the money to be sent.
