Fake KDF Nabbed After Arresting Real Police Officer

A Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) imposter was arrested by police officers in Kisii County after he attempted to take a female cop into custody.

The 27-year-old man, wearing a military camouflage jacket drove into Suneka Police Station and parked his Toyota Delta.

He then walked courageously into the report office and dragged out a female constable for allegedly wearing an inappropriate police uniform.

Chaos ensued as the two confronted each other. Alarmed by the incident, the officer's colleague rushed to intervene and deescalate the situation. However, the fake KDF soldier refused to hear them out.

"The intruder violently pulled the lady officer from her duty post which prompted the immediate intervention by her colleague and the duty officer," a statement by the National Police Service read.

Deputy OSC, Cephas Ombija, also urged the suspect to produce his identification documents, but to no avail. Ombija thus concluded that the suspect was pretending to be a military officer.

This prompted the officer to call for help from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) who swiftly responded and apprehended the imposter.
