Four Form One students of Nasianda Secondary School in Likuyani Sub-county are cooling their heels at a police station after they were found with bhang.
The four students were arrested after the school principal informed Kongoni Location chief Peter Lugano, who then called police officers from Nangili Police Station.
“I alerted officers from Nangili police station and went to the school where, on interrogating the four, they revealed the source of the illegal drug,” Lugano told the media.
The students led the police to a 70-year-old man, John Mutenyo, who is accused of supplying them with the prohibited drug. The police nabbed marijuana worth Sh30,000 alongside 20 litres of illicit brew and arrested him.
All five are locked up at the police station awaiting arraignment in court.
