An Assistant Chief in Eastleigh has been arrested after he was found impersonating a police officer and extorting money from the members of the public.

Starehe OCPD Alice Wahome said that Mr Wilson Maina of Garage Sub-Location ward was arrested after he and an accomplice were found robbing people along the Eastleigh 1st Avenue.

Members of the public informed the police that the two men in civilian clothes, who identified themselves as police officers, were arresting people along the streets at night.

They were allegedly handcuffing their victims before demanding money from them.

Officers from the Eastleigh North police post rushed to the scene and managed to arrest the assistant chief while his accomplice escaped. Police recovered a pair handcuffs from the suspect (serial number 3KP1189). The OCPD said that the accused will appear in court on Wednesday.
