Cops hunting for rider who fled with friend’s Sh505K and switched off phone
Police are looking for a boda boda rider who disappeared after receiving Sh505,200 he had been sent by his friend to collect for her.
Bernard Onsase had been sent by Monica Macharia to collect the money from her friend at Wilson Airport on May 9.
He later switched off his phone and disappeared.
Shaurimoyo police station is obtained court orders to compel telephone services provider Safaricom to share details of Onsase and his wife Asenath Omwenga’s mobile phone numbers.
Police constable Mohamed Ragow told Makadara chief magistrate Heston Nyaga that Onsase has been Macharia’s customer but moved his family and relocated to an unknown place.
Police want Safaricom to avail M-Pesa transaction details of the couple’s phone numbers from May 9 to date and any other information that may help in obtaining concrete evidence for the case.
The police also want to have access and carry away document related to transactions of Onsase’s account and Safaricom to provide other telephone numbers the two could have registered.
Nyaga granted the orders, but, however, pointed out that 90 percent of Kenyans are likely to do what Onsase did.
