Police in Eldoret arrested a teenager after a young girl's decapitated body was found dumped near a petrol station on Wednesday.

The 17-years-old suspect is said to have been in the company of the deceased, who has been identified a form one student at Sirende Girls School in Trans-Nzoia County.

Following the report of the victim’s disappearance witnesses said they saw her together with the suspect on Tuesday.
