Parents have also been warned to take keen interest in their children’s activities at home and on social media networks during the COVID-19 period.

Preliminary investigations by the DCI have established the girls were lured out of their homes through a social media account named Carty-gang-ent. The cartel is using internationally-registered telephone numbers, although they operate from Nairobi.
