Ten students of Anestar Bahati Boys' Secondary School in Nakuru County are sitting for their Kenya Certificate of Secondary Examinations(KCSE) from a police station after they were arrested on Thursday night.
Police said the students were arrested for sneaking a girls’ dormitory at the nearby Anestar Precious Girls' Secondary School.
Nakuru County Commissioner Erastus Mbui said the schoolboys, whose mission still remains unclear, were arrested before they caused any harm.
“Tens of boys stormed the dorm under the cover of darkness. However, police officers from the nearby Githioro Police post responded swiftly after the girls raised alarm, “said Mr Mbui.
He said only 10 boys were arrested as the others escaped into the darkness.
The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) in a tweet said police used tear gas to disperse the boys, who nearly overpowered the police.
“Not even the arrival of the police scared away the defiant boys, who kept hovering around the dormitory," DCI said on Twitter.
