Rogue Police Officer Arrested In Kayole
A rogue police officer was on Saturday arrested in Nairobi’s Kayole area.
The officer by the name David Odhiambo was arrested at his home in Mihang’o after he was linked to several criminal incidents in the area.
Kayole Police Boss Wilson Kosgei says that Odhiambo was arrested alongside another civilian who was at his house during the time of the arrest.
Police recovered uniforms, handcuffs, boots and other police items hidden in corporal Odhiambo’s house.
“As officers we only have 3 pairs of uniform. How can an officer have more than that? posed Kosgei.
The arrests come against a background of reports of Kayole police officers being named in criminal activities and reports of police harassing residents of Kayole.
Just last month, some police officers attached to the Kayole police station were allegedly involved in a criminal activity that saw two businessmen lose Ksh. 6 Million in a lodging.
