Flying squad officers were on Sunday called upon to save two DCI detectives after drama ensued at a road block in Kitengela over a lorry that was suspected to be transporting illegal ethanol.

The lorry had been seized at Namanga after the detectives had been tipped off and the driver had been asked to produce documents to show the goods being transported was maize as he had claimed.

Failure to show the documents prompted the detectives to take the car to the headquarters in Nairobi.

Trouble began at the road block when the DCI officers were confronted by ordinary police officers and asked to hand over their guns.

“But the officers manning the roadblock became furious and demanded that we alight and handover our guns at gunpoint. They also took away a certificate of appointment from one of us,” stated one of the detectives.

Flying squad officers deployed by Yego

Following the drama, the lorry was ordered to be taken to the Kitengela police station by the area OCS Silas Ringera.

The matter escalated and the flying squad was sent by the boss Musa Yego, to resolve the matter and rescue the detectives.

The vehicle was however later released from the police station and transported to the DCI headquarters to undergo inspection and verification.
