These are suspected to have pioneered in setting a blaze KU administration and destroy a school gate. The riot was a result of disagreements between the administration and the students.

In a sworn affidavit addressed to Kiambu Principal Magistrate Justus Kituku, Dettective John Keter informed the court that they need a minimum of five days to finalize the case that has been pending.

The case has pended owing to the fact that students who are to take part in the investigation process have been on a break.

The police believe the detention will not only aid a smooth investigation process but also prevent the suspects from inciting other students
