A police officer based in Nairobi has been arrested after Flying Squad detectives linked him to theft of Ksh.800,000.
According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI), Kelvin Ndosi is part of “rogue officers” who demanded for a bribe from Bathily Abdoulaye,a Mali national.
“…on 15/09/2018 four police officers from Nairobi Area command came to his Kilimani residence and arrested him.In the process of the arrest the officers ransacked his house and took the following items: 8,000 US Dollars, Ksh.83,000, 3 Rolex watches each valued at 15,000 US Dollars, his passport and also transferred Ksh.30,000 from his Mobile phone number to another Mobile phone number,” DCI tweeted.
Abdoulaye then lodged a complaint at the DCI offices over the unprocedural arrest.
He reported that the police officers took him to Central Police Station but later released him without official booking in the Occurrence Book.
The police officers then tried to solicite another Ksh. 800,000 from him but he reached out to the DCI who then set a trap for the officers.
A suspect Moses Njogu Njagi was arrested and found with the complainant’s passport. He then led the detectives to Central Police Station where No.88724 PC Kelvin Ndosi was also arrested.
The DCI is still looking for other police officers and a driver involved in the scandal.
