Acting on intelligence reports, the detectives based at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) headquarters traced the victims to a house in Kirigiti, Kiambu County on Friday.
After securing the area and gaining access, the distraught victims aged between 13 and 35 were found crowded in one room.
