What started as a normal reporting of a crime incident, turned out differently after a man was detained by officers at Koinen Police after he failed to provide identification. 

According to a report by the Standard, the man had reported to have been robbed of Ksh 500000 by two people. He identified one as Maritim Kiprono who according to him, is attached to the Critical Infrastructure Protection Unit (CIPU). 

According to the man, he met the officer who was in the company of a lady at a restaurant at Litenin Town. After talking for a while, he requested them to drop him at his Belgut home. 

On the way, the driver changed route and started driving towards Mogogsiek trading center where they stopped the car and robbed him. 

Trouble crept in when the officers asked the man to properly identify himself. He claimed to be the principal magistrate at Nakuru law courts. He was asked to provide an ID but failed. 

He was immediately arrested and is currently being detained. 

Meanwhile, share with us your thoughts on the matter kindly.
