Four rogue officers from the office of the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) have been arrested for robbery with violence.
In chilling revelations, the DCI revealed that four of its officers based at Lang’ata allegedly abducted a man and forcefully obtained money from him.
The four, Tom Otieno, Antony Mwanza, Cornelius Wambua and Kennedy Odero reportedly waylayed their victim on February 6, 2022, next to NextGen mall where they forcefully bundled him in a Subaru that was parked outside before they transferred Sh40,000 from his Mpesa to their phone.
They are said to have further taken the victim to his apartment where they again stole overSh272,000 before dumping him at a Nyama Choma point along Mombasa Road.
“The following day, the victim went to Akira police station to make his report, only to find the vehicle he had been bundled into parked at the station. He immediately rushed to our headquarters where he reported his discovery at the Serious Crimes Unit,” the report reads in part.
