Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) on Wednesday arrested a suspect who has been purporting to be a lawyer.

Ethan Kamau Njagi, who has allegedly been issuing fake orders purporting them to be genuine orders from courts in Kiambu and Nairobi, was arrested at Kahawa West.

According to the DCI, the suspect has been obtaining money falsely from unsuspecting members of the public.

Njagi is said to have, on many occasions, represented his victims in court proceedings by pretending to be a partner with several law firms within Nairobi and Kiambu.

“Stamped documents made by the suspect bearing the names of different law firms, believed to be fake or forged were recovered from the suspect’s house by the sleuths and have been retained as exhibits pending his arraignment,” said the DCI.
