There was drama in Meru County when 2 senior officers who were on routine patrol duties were accosted by a 17 year old teenager at night. The incident which took place at the beginning of curfew hours led to the officers drawing out their guns after a serious scuffle with the teenager.
According to Kenyans.co.ke digital news platform, the teenager who was clad in full jungle uniform was in possession of National Police Service (NPS) clothes and was allegedly patrolling the area for curfew violators. The police handling the case say the teenager together with an older accomplice were robbing and extorting curfew violators while also executing robberies within the larger Meru region.
The incident comes weeks after a Citizen TV documentary by Purity Mwambia drew the anger of the DCI boss Kinoti who called it a fabrication. The revelations by the investigative journalist indicated that police were selling illegal firearms and uniforms to criminals for thousands. This latest arrest will certainly cause a stir on the leadership of the police.
