According to one Victim whose name we are withholding because of the position he holds at the Dedan Kimathi University, He was enjoying his drink in the evening at a nearby Bar after a long day of the Ceremony when a very cute Woman approached him to ask for a mobile phone charger. The Man was willing to help but then the lady changed the topic and suggested that he should join her on her table. YES, he agreed to join her but as they continued to drink the Man felt dizzy and sleepy. He woke up after nearly 7 hours only to realize that his new Friend “Woman”, was missing, his two expensive phones, the Laptop and the Money were gone as well.
