The DCI verified the arrest of Phylis Njeri, who is suspected of torturing a 3-year-old kid to death, on Wednesday, March 30. The sleuths added in the statement that they smoked her out of her hiding in Illasit hamlet, near the Kenya-Tanzania border.
Detectives from the elite Crime Research & Intelligence Bureau (CRIB), assisted by detectives from the Homicide division and another special squad headquartered at DCI Nairobi regional headquarters, smoked out Njeri and her suspected collaborator.

During an interview with Lynn Ngugi, the minor’s mother revealed that she left the 3-year-old and his 6-year-old sibling in Njeri’s care when she left the nation for Saudi Arabia in November 2021.
“Only four months after her departure, Njoki got the heartbreaking news of her son’s terrible murder, sparking fury among Kenyans who urged the DCI to bring the culprit to justice.”
“Sleuths situated in the Corporate Communications and Public Affairs section acquired material circulating on social networking platforms regarding the baby’s most heinous murder and shared specifics of the occurrence with the special teams,” according to the DCI.
“Investigations were quickly initiated, exposing grisly facts of how angel David was cruelly killed by Njeri and her husband Jackson Ngui, as his shocked elder brother Peter Ndung’u looked on in amazement,” the investigators claimed.
“The body had severe burns on both hands, legs and buttocks. It also had fresh injuries on the neck, the back and the face, signifying the amount of torture that the minor underwent, before his painful death,” the sleuths noted.
“Meanwhile, detectives based at the DCI National Forensic Laboratory, biology division and their scenes of crime counterparts shall be visiting the couple’s house for further DNA analysis of the scene, to obtain more scientific evidence for a watertight case against the suspects.”
