Antony Obare was on Tuesday arrested by police officers around Huduma Centre in Migori after he reportedly attempted to con a woman.

Confirming the incident, Migori County Police boss Joseph Nthenge said the suspect was trying to con a nurse working at Migori Level Four Hospital when he was nabbed.

Mr. Nthenge said the police officers, acting on a tip off from the said nurse, lured the imposter to Huduma Centre where they pounced on him.

Mr. Obare was – upon his arrest – found in possession of a fake police identification card purporting that he was a Senior Superintendent attached to the Criminal Investigations Department.

According to the police boss, the imposter – who hails from Oruba estate in Suna West – is still in custody pending investigations and will be arraigned in court on Wednesday.

The police boss also asked members of the public who have previously been conned by the imposter to report to the police to aid investigations.
