Unfortunately, a 17-year old boy was reported missing after the event, only to be found dead, days later.

Following the fatal incident, Bridget and the Nai Fest fraternity, expressed remorse and deep regret over the case.
“We state in no uncertain terms, it is deeply regrettable,” reads her statement.
Adding, “we have commenced investigations in conjunction with the DCI Dagoretti in an attempt to ascertain the crimes that were allegedly committed on the said date.”
The address further indicates that the Nai Fest fraternity had made proper arrangement to ensure all went as planned but;
“There are certain circumstances that were unforeseeable and not within our control. However, we do acknowledge, we should have had additional security as this is a learning curve for us.”
“In this regard, we shall continue to stand with and support the families adversely affected. It is regrettable and we hope it shall not happen again,” the letter wraps up.
Her posts have since attracted mixed reactions as friends of the deceased boy insist he was murdered by bouncers and his body dumped in the morgue, thereby demanding justice.
