A Nairobi police officer has been arrested after Flying Squad detectives linked him to theft of Ksh.800,000 from a Mali national.

According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI), Kelvin Ndosi is part of “rogue officers” who demanded for a bribe from Bathily Abdoulaye.

“…on 15/09/2018 four police officers from Nairobi Area command came to his Kilimani residence and arrested him.

“In the process of the arrest the officers ransacked his house and took the following items: 8,000 US Dollars, Ksh.83,000, 3 Rolex watches each valued at 15,000 US Dollars, his passport and also transferred Ksh.30,000 from his Mobile phone number to another Mobile phone number,” DCI said on Twitter.

The Mali national then lodged a complaint at the DCI offices over the “unprocedural” arrest.

He reported that the police officers took him to Central Police Station but later released him without official booking in the Occurrence Book.

The officers also apparently solicited for another Ksh.800,000 bribe which he told them he would give them at an agreed location.

It is at this point that the man teamed up with DCI detectives and an ambush was set up at Yaya Centre mall in Nairobi.

On suspect Moses Njogu Njagi was arrested and found with the complainant’s passport. He then led the detectives to Central Police Station where No.88724 PC Kelvin Ndosi was also seized.

Other police officers involved in the corruption scandal and a driver are still being sought.
