Rogue city cop arrested for robbing West African man of Sh5.4m in Kilimani

Police on Tuesday laid an ambush and arrested their colleague who is accused of robbing a Malian of cash and goods worth Sh5.3 million.

The rogue policeman was with three accomplices when they arrested the Malian at his residence in Kilimani.

According to the police, one Bathily Abdoulaye reported that on Saturday four people who identified themselves as police officers went to his residence and arrested him.

After his arrest, he was escorted to Central Police Station where he was later released without being officially booked in the Occurrence Book (OB).

RANSACKED HOUSE

Police added that in the process of Mr Abdoulaye’s arrest, the four people ransacked his house and took away $8,000 in cash, together with Ksh83,000 in cash, three Rolex watches each valued at $15,000, his passport and also transferred Sh30,000 from his mobile phone.

The complainant added that the same people continued demanding from him an additional $8,000 through phone calls, prompting him to report the matter to police.

Flying Squad officers laid an ambush at Yaya Centre where the money was supposed to be delivered. They managed to arrest one suspect, Moses Njogu Njagi who led officers to Central Police Station where Constable Kelvin Ndosi of Department of Criminal Investigation (DCI) Central was also arrested.

PASSPORT RECOVERED

Police recovered the passport of the complainant from Constable Ndosi.

The Flying Squad is still looking for the other rogue police officers including one driver attached to the County Criminal Investigations Officer, Nairobi Area.

The arrests come just days after four others were on Monday and Tuesday arrested after they had committed a robbery in Nakuru and one of the officers left his official magazine with 15 rounds of ammunition at the crime scene.
