Property worth millions was destroyed after a fire gutted down a dormitory at St Pius X Seminary, Nkubu in Meru County on Thursday evening. The fire is suspected to have been caused by two students who were later arrested.
They were taken to Nkubu Police Station for interrogation. The dormitory housed 120 students.
The school’s director, Fr Lawrence Micheni, said the two were arrested by their fellow students who suspected they were involved. “The boys were leaving a church service to the dining hall for their supper when the incident occurred,” said Fr Micheni.
The director added that the affected students would be housed in other dormitories before they make a decision Friday. Luckily, no casualties were reported during the 7pm incident.
