Police officers from the Buruburu police station on Saturday arrested two of their colleagues in connection with robberies in Nairobi’s Eastlands Area.
Head of Directorate of Criminal Investigations at Buru Buru, Jeremiah Ikiao, said the two suspects will be charged in court today.
He added that the officers attached to Buruburu Administration Police unit, were arrested following a complaint by members of the public.
“The complaint of armed men detaining someone in a car for unknown reasons was lodged with the police in Buruburu,” Ikiao said.
“We immediately deployed officers who found two armed officers in civilian clothes demanding cash from the owner of the car,” he said.
They were detained at their work place where they were grilled. Police established that the two officers were involved in three cases of robbery in Dandora, Buruburu and Kayole.
“We cannot compromise with the law. For now they remain suspects and will be taken to court tomorrow,” added Ikiao on Sunday.
