A registrar attached to the Ngong Lands office has been nabbed by Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission detectives.
Charles Mwendwa Mutua was nabbed after he demanded Sh2.5 million bribe to process a title deed, the anti-graft group confirmed.
Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission said Mutua reportedly asked for the money jointly with his senior, Caroline Simuli Kituyi, the Chief Land Registrar in the office.
Mutua was nabbed by EACC officers on Monday evening and taken to Kilimani Police Station where he is now being held.
Meanwhile, the EACC officers are now hunting for Ms Kituyi who is now on the run.
The EACC urged her to surrender herself at EACC offices on Valley Road, Nairobi.
This comes barely three weeks when EACC officers also nab six police officers for allegedly extorting bribes along the road in Nairobi County.
The officers were arrested after mounting a roadblock along Nairobi-Naivasha Highway.
However, police officers have launched investigations into the alleged crime incident.
