Four police officers steal KSh2.2 million from a school, find out what happened next!

Four police officers, one of whom was involved in the arrest of a 19-year-old motorist, Ian Njoroge, who had assaulted a traffic officer, have been detained.

The police officer who participated in Njoroge’s arrest on Sunday June 2 was arrested along with six people, including three officers, for alleged participation in a violent robbery.

According to NTV, the officer and his colleagues were arrested on Thursday, June 6, for allegedly stealing KSh2.2 million from a locked vehicle parked at a school in Utawala.

The school accountant reported the incident to the Mihang’o police station. Preliminary investigations revealed that two suspects had already been arrested by unidentified individuals in a Subaru vehicle.

Further investigations led Mihang’o officers to Kasarani police station, where they found the Subaru vehicle. Inside, they discovered two suspects and four police officers who allegedly apprehended the civilians.

The police officers, who were not on official duty, were found in possession of over KSh450,000, believed to be part of the stolen money.

In another incident, EACC officials arrested a police officer assigned to the Parliament Police Station on Wednesday, June 5, over allegations of corruption.

According to the EACC, the officer demanded a bribe from the suspect to close the case and threatened to add new charges against him in court if the bribe was not paid.

Following his arrest, the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Renson Igonga, approved the prosecution and ordered the release of the complainant, requesting that the matter be resolved in court.

The EACC said the complainant reported the matter to the anti-corruption agency, which conducted an investigation before arresting Mbili.

The officer, identified as Corporal John Mwai Mbili, was charged with corruption for allegedly trying to solicit a bribe of KSh40,000 from a suspect.
