Two policemen were on Monday arrested by Flying Squad officers in connection to a Nakuru robbery incident.

The two were arrested after the magazine of a pistol assigned to one of them was found in a robbery scene. The magazine was found with 15 rounds of ammunition at a robbery scene in Olengune.

The officer was later found with a pistol that did not have magazine.

The two Constable Arthur Murithi of DCI Molo and Administration Police Constable Felix Korir of Kamara Division were then arrested alongside others.

DCI made the announcement via Twitter, detailing that seven other civilians were also arrested.

They are Patrick Kimani Ndungu, Cosmas Kipkurui Koech, John Muthama Gathecha, Douglas Kiplangat Kirui, Samuel Gagiri Nderitu, Bernard Kipkorir Cheruyiot and Geoffrey Cheruyiot Terer.

Kenyans lauded the Flying Squad for the arrests and urged the DCI to ensure justice is served.
