A police officer was apprehended by his colleagues after he lost a government issued gun while on his leave days in Uasin Gishu county. The incident which happened earlier in the day led to a massive operation to try and recover the fire arm which was loaded with over 15 bullets.
According to a K24 digital news media platform, the incident was reported at Tarakwa Police Station by the policeman who is attached to the Border Patrol Unit (BPU) based in Kitui after realizing that the pistol was missing. Reports by the investigation officer revealed that he allegedly kept it in his rented room's ceiling board wrapped under cloth.
He further indicated that he found out that it was missing when he wanted to secure it and go back to his work station when he found out that it was not there. All his police documents were also missing and a further investigation revealed his neighbor had shifted a day after it disappeared. A search is still ongoing for the neighbor who he shared the same compound with.
