Mirema Suspected Thug: How The Man Managed to Register More Than 300 Banks Accounts With 1212 As Uniform Pin

DCI has unravelled more puzzles about the thug, Samuel Mugoh Muvota, who was shot at Mirema in Nairobi by an unknown man.

DCI has revealed that to carry out his crimes without getting noticed, the man had managed to register more than 300 bank accounts using unsuspecting youths from Embu.

He is said to have visited Embu County where he managed to convince 100 youths that he was going to employ them as casuals at the Lamu port and Mau Mau road construction. 

He then asked them to have at least three bank accounts specifically for the job he was going to give them.

"After a sumptuous meal of nyama choma washed down with a drink of one’s choice, he told the clueless job seekers that they all needed new SIM cards and three bank accounts each from the leading banks. He helped them register the accounts and paid for their ATM cards," DCI said in part

After having the youths believe his tricks, he later came back and asked them to register for mobile banking and use 1212 as the PIN number.

He then collected all the SIM cards after he lied to the youths that he was going to deliver them to the treasury offices, where their payments were to be processed after starting working.

He also told them to keep the deal under the carpet because it was a rare one for them and many other people would want it.

Armed with personal details from the young men and women, the man was able to steal from unsuspecting Kenyans and sent the money to these accounts thus leaving behind no traces of his real identity.
