The officers in question called for back up where they roughly beat Boniface as the CCTV footage in the building recorded everything .He was manhandled by three officers armed with guns and Rungu yet he was unarmed.
His motive was right since there has been cases of people disguising themselves as police officer to con Kenyans.His good motive was misinterpreted as being biased and he received a beating hopefully he will remember throughout his life.
