The boys had sneaked into the girls' school compound on the night of Wednesday October 20, and were spotted by the girls who screamed in fright. The screams attracted the attention of the security guards and staff members who descended on the young boy, beating him to death.

The other five boys managed to escape, but unfortunately for the boy, he was caught.

According to George Ng'ang'a Karanja, a manager at the security firm providing services at the girls' school, the boy was rushed to Kigumo Level 4 Hospital while unconcious, but died upon arrival.

Police have launched an investigation into the incident that took the life of the 17-year-old boy. The incident happened barely two months after four students from Gatamaiyu Boys Secondary School were left nursing serious wounds after irate neighbors beat them for sneaking into neighboring Gachoire Girls' High School.
