A similar incident happened along Eastern Bypass, Nairobi back in January where an officer identified as Peter Lukote was ran over by a 14-seater matatu.
The driver, Edward Njoroge, was allegedly flagged down by the deceased officer along Eastern Bypass while ferrying unknown plastic materials in his vehicle.
The officer is said to have asked Mr Njoroge for his driver's license which the driver refused to hand over.
The driver was later arrested by DCI officers.
