Detectives from the Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) has begun investigating online and that has been luring teenage girls to ‘sex parties’.

In a statement released on Saturday, DCI said preliminary investigations have established that the young girls were being lured out of their homes through a social media account known as Carty-gang-ent.

The DCI established that the cartel has been using internationally-registered telephone numbers to hide their identity even though they operated with the capital – Nairobi.

The probe started after the officers rescued six out of seven teenage girls who had been reported missing.

The seven teenagers were last seen in Komarock, Nairobi on November 14 prompting their parents to seek help.

One of the girl’s relatives appealed to the members of the public in a viral video to help them trace their children.

In the video, the distressed woman said they fear the girls were being trafficked for sex since the mobile number used for communicating to them was an American line.

After they were rescued, the girls told the authorities – Anti-Human Trafficking and Child Protection Unit and the Crime Research and Intelligence Bureau officers that they were lured from their home and linked up in partying joints in Nairobi.

According to the detectives, parents from Kayole and Komarock have reported cases of their missing girls.

“Some of the parents reported their daughters were missing after they failed to return home several days after leaving,” said DCI.

Detectives said the investigations are still on and all members of the cartel will be arrested and charged.

DCI urged parents to take a keen interest in their children’s activities both at home and on social media.

“As the investigations go on, we wish to issue a stern warning to individuals taking advantage of the Covid-19 pandemic to prey on school girls who are at home, especially through the social media networks, that their days are numbered,” said DCI in a statement.
