Police on The Spot as Man Goes Missing in Nakuru

  • Police officers in Nakuru are on the spot after a 34-year old man who had been picked up by officers at his home went missing.

    Fredrick Kinanga, a timber-dealer, was allegedly approached by three men claiming to be police officers at his home in Kiamunyi on the night of May 22, 2018.

    His wife Lilian Chemutai revealed that the men stormed the home at around 8 pm and left with Kinanga despite having offered no proof that they were indeed police officers.

    The officers wore civilian clothing and only had handcuffs.

    They refused to to explain to Kinanga or his family why they had to place him under police custody.

    The officers are suspected to be from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) in Kisii.

    Chemutai went to Central Police Station in Nakuru accompanied by relatives in a bid to find out why her husband was being held.

    She was shocked upon realizing that Kinanga had left with the officers at 3 am despite having been booked in the station's Occurence Book (OB) 90/22/5/2018.

    “My husband is missing, three men who introduced themselves as police officers came to our home and walked away with him, I followed up to the police station but did not find him despite having been recorded in the OB,” she explained.

    Chemutai further revealed that Nakuru Central OCPD Samuel Obara had been uncooperative on the matter.

    "I am not aware," Obara is quoted telling Standard before disconnecting the phone call.
