The incident occurred on Monday, January 9, when the two clients, Hassan Omar and Mohamed Hassan, had just withdrawn cash from a bank located along Mama Ngina Street in Nairobi.

The four police officers, including three sergeants and a corporal, were said to have confronted the victims and forced them into their car.

They demanded the bag containing the cash and claimed that one of the men, Mohamed Hassan, was wanted for an unspecified crime.

"While along standard Street about 20 meters from their Forex bureau they were confronted by four men who claimed to be police officers and informed them that they were after the said Mohammed Hassan who was carrying the bag containing the money and that he was wanted for an offence which they did not disclose," the police report read in part.

However, before they could make off with the money, the victims raised the alarm, catching the attention of security personnel who were manning the bank.

The security officers managed to secure the bag with the money, and the police officers fled.

The suspects were later intercepted and arrested at the Muthaiga after their vehicle's registration plate was circulated among police circles.

The suspects were disarmed, their weapons seized, and they were also taken to the Nairobi DCI office for questioning.

They may face charges of attempted robbery through the use of violence.
