In a daring incident caught on CCTV cameras on Monday, a man on a motorbike snatched a police officer’s phone at a Shell Petrol Station along the busy Kangundo Road at around 10:09am.
In the 45-second footage shared on social media by Muktar Maalim, the officer in full police uniform is seen busy engaged on his mobile phone but did not know that a man on motorbike was timing him.
