A police officer attached to the presidential escort unit is among two suspects arrested at the Kutus Mall in Gichugu, Kirinyaga County, for allegedly kidnapping a 36-year-old woman.
The officer based at the Ruiru General Service Unit (GSU) camp and two others were arrested after the woman sounded the alarm attracting the residents of Kutus.
Gichugu Sub-County Police Commander Anthony Mbogo said the suspects forced 36-year-old Mercy Wahu Njogu to withdraw money from a local bank when she sounded the alarm.
The police chief in Gichugu also revealed that the officer was wanted for having deserted his post since March of this year.
