According to the report by K24, the two were employees of Afro Forex Bureau in Nairobi. While heading back to their places of work after withdrawing money from Absa bank along Mama Ngina street, Mohammed Hassan, and Hassan Omar were approached by three individuals who introduced themselves as police officers. They said that they were after Mohammed Hassan for crimes they did not reveal. At that time, Mohammed Hassan was carrying a bag that contained the withdrawn money.
The duo raised an alarm which attracted nearby security guards and the Critical Infrastructure Protection Unit (CIPU).

The rogue officers claimed that they were taking the duo to the DCI headquarters. The vehicle then intercepted within Muthaiga, and the officers arrested. They were arrested under the attempted robbery with violence. The vehicle they used is detained at the Nairobi regional headquarters.
