Another G4S security employee has been arrested by detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) in connection to the Ksh72 million heist.
According to the DCI, they acted on a tip-off that led to the arrest of Bernard Sewanga at a newly rented house in Ruiru where he had reportedly gone to hide after the heist.
The suspect then led the officers to the home of his father-in-law in Lurambi, Kakamega County where the detectives recovered Ksh1 million which had been buried in a cowshed.
“It is after the suspect was arrested-in a newly rented Hse-in #Ruiru that he led DCI Detectives to #Lurambi, Kakamega in the Homestead of his Father-in-law where the Cash was found hidden in a black bag and buried in the cow shade,” DCI tweeted.
