A University of Nairobi (UoN) graduate and a land broker have been arrested for stealing from a dead man's bank accounts.

In a series of tweets from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), Eutycus Muguna Mutembei and Ayugu Eugene Shivachi who appeared before the Nairobi's Law Courts, were charged with stealing Ksh. 2.8 million from the late Amos Ngatia Muiruri's bank account.

"A university graduate and a land broker were today charged with stealing Sh2.8 million from a dead man’s bank accounts. Eutycus Muguna Mutembei and Ayugu Eugene Shivachi were charged at Nairobi’s Milimani Law Courts with using the late Amos Ngatia Muiruri's credentials to steal from his various bank accounts. Milimani Chief Magistrate Martha Mutuku released the two on a cash bail of Sh500,000 each and directed them to provide two contact persons," wrote the DCI.

The two were also accused of stealing 39 sim-cards from subscribers and used them to commit crimes.

The DCI revealed that Mutembei is a Bachelors of Arts in Economics and Statistics graduate from the University of Nairobi, while his accomplice Shivachi is a taxi driver.

Their arrest has now unraveled a major SIM swap scam in which high-tech phone scammers hijack the victim’s cell phone number and use it to gain their personal information and later their bank accounts.
