  • A man claims to be robbed of Sh600,000 and two iPhones by police

Police are investigating an incident where a man was reportedly abducted by people believed to be police and robbed of Sh600, 000 in the Utawala, Embakasi area. Naftali Kamau reported to the police that he went to withdraw the cash from Utawala Equity Bank at around 9:40 am Friday to take his lawyer for a transaction. The victim said his lawyer was waiting for him at his Donholm office. While on the way, Kamau said he noticed a white Toyota Axio following him. The vehicle sped, overtook, and blocked him at Baraka estate junction. “Two armed traffic police officers, a lady, and a gentleman flagged me to stop and asked why I was overspeeding. As we were talking, they opened the doors and entered my vehicle and grabbed the brown envelope that had the money I had withdrawn,” he told police in his report. He followed the two to their vehicle where he saw two people in civilian clothes. He demanded back his money but he was not given. They told him to board their car and sped towards Utawala where they threw him out of the car at Benedictor Junction. The victim told the police that while in the car he was also robbed of two iPhones. The police have since launched an investigation on the incident. Police say they receive such reports almost weekly and suspect some of those involved are police officers and bank officers.
