Two police officers have been arrested following the disappearance of exhibits relating to a narcotics case that were held at Garissa Police station.

The 18 rolls of bhang had been seized from a suspected drug dealer on Tuesday, August 31.

Garissa Police Station OCS identified Police Constables Akuku David Robert Birundu as the main suspects behind the mysterious disappearance of the exhibits on Wednesday.

According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations, officers from the station had arrested 25-year-old Joy Mawia Mutua, who was in possession of the drugs that had been carefully concealed in her body.
