Detectives in Kwale are holding Mr Timothy Ogba Ebakole and Mr Alex Olesugun Adebayo who were seized from their hideout in Kayole estate in Nairobi.

Others who were impersonated by the suspects include Kilifi Senator Steward Madzayo and his Bomet counterpart Christopher Langat.

An assortment of gadgets and equipment used by the suspects were also recovered during the raid that involved officers from Kilifi, working with their counterparts from Nairobi.

“We had to dispatch our officers from this station and busted the two inn Kayole in Nairobi where we seized equipment and gadgets that they were using to swindle Kenyans” Kilifi Directorate of Criminal Investigations Officer Christopher Chesoli revealed.

“We believe that they have received millions of shillings from the public,” he added.

Even after their arrest, requests and demands kept on pouring through their phones as different people sought to know how far their ‘applications’ had gone.

The suspects had made fortune soliciting for funds from the public to help acquire various services ranging from bursaries and non-existent loans from the ‘government’.
