“We received a tip from the public that children were participating in the house and loud music disturbing the neighboring houses,” he added.

During the raid, bottles of alcohol, two packets of unused condoms and two motorcycles suspected of being used to transport young children to the ceremony were recovered.

The children were taken to Ringa police station.

The incident comes at a time when religious leaders and other stakeholders in the county have been urging parents and guardians to take extra care of their children to prevent them from engaging in social ills.
