An assistant chief arrested a 16-year-old boy after he sneaked out of school to check on the bhang he allegedly grows at home.
Enchoro assistant chief Henry Otiso caught the Form, One student after he was seen around his home.
“I received a tip-off from the public that the student had sneaked from school and that he had been seen where he resides. I rushed there with some other members of Nyumba Kumi and arrested the boy. We also uprooted the bhang as evidence,” reads the report of the administrator that was recorded at Gesima Police Post.
The chief said the boy had about 50 plants near their house.
Grace Kakai , the Nyamira County Police Commander said the young student will be arraigned and asked parents to be vigilant of their children’s activities.
“Parents should be key in preventing the problem of drugs,” said Ms Kakai .
