The two individuals Benson Mwangangi and Anne Kanana masqueraded as EACC detectives and went after their victim whom they had prior information on his illegal dealings in the Water and Sewerage connections.
According to police after threatening the victim they made away with Kshs.700, 000 with a promise to come back and fetch the remaining Ksh300,000.
After a tip-off, the two were arrested when they came back for the remaining amount.
The Fake EACC detectives are said to have informed the victim that he was adversely mentioned in an ongoing case at the Nairobi Water and Sewerage Company.
Fearing for his life the victim agreed to part with the Ksh1 million bribe so that his file may not be brought before a court of law.
Muasya, One of the culprits said that they had picture evidence of the illegal water connections that the victim had allegedly been involved in.
The imposters showed up to collect the final loot of Ksh 300,000 after which they were nabbed after the victim reported the scam to EACC.
Cases of criminals posing as investigative agency’s officers have been on the rise in recent past with the commission now urging Kenyans to report suspicious individuals who introduce themselves as EACC officers without proper identification.
