Robbery

According to the Police report, the accountant had withdrawn the money that part was stolen, intended for the payment of casual workers at the said school.

He then parked his car outside the school, took some amount from the withdrawn sum, locked the car, and entered the school compound since he couldn’t carry the whole amount.

However, upon return for more cash, he found the car broken into and the millions missing.

“Meanwhile, DCI officers from the Nairobi region and Kayole obtained crucial actionable intelligence and proceeded to the Utawala area in pursuit of a suspect they had identified from CCTV analysis,” DCI said.

“Further two motor vehicles, one belonging to the Ruai officer and another belonging to the 5th suspect (Magwaga) which were parked at the yard were detained.”
