Police in Migori are holding two men who were arrested on Tuesday for allegedly posing as a police officer to defraud members of the public.

The two, identified as Anthony Obare Okemwa and Godfrey Odhiambo, are accused of posing as Senior Superintendent police officers (SSP), taking advantage of unsuspecting locals.

One of them, Mr Okemwa, was cornered as he extorted money from a nurse working at Migori County Hospital.

The suspicion led to the arrest of the other suspect, Mr Odhiambo.

Migori County Police Commander Joseph Nthenge confirmed the arrest saying the police were acting on a tip-off from members.

According to Nthenge, the nurse had raised the issue with the police after she became suspicious of the man.

“He told them he is a police officer attached to CID and is on-field duties,” said Nthenge.

Police recovered fake police identification card from the two.
