NAIROBI, Kenya, Dec 22- A senior police officer was arrested Tuesday in Tharaka Nithi, accused of sodomising six boys.

The boys aged between 14 and 19 years were found in his house, police said.

“In a horror-like scene visited by Maara sub-County Criminal Investigations head and his Kenya Police counterparts, the boys were found sleeping on the floor in the perpetrator’s house in within Chogoria Township,” the DCI tweeted, “Upon expeditious interrogation of the boys, it was established that the senior officer has been sodomizing them for an unspecified period.”

The boys hail from Ntumu village and had been visiting the man’s house on invitation.
