Samburu OCS rejects Sh.80K bribe, hands suspects to EACC

The Officer Commanding Station (OCS) at Archers Post Police Station in Samburu County declined a bribe of Ksh 80,000 offered by three individuals trying to free a suspect, Mohamed Musdaf Mahamad, accused of robbery and human trafficking.

Instead, Chief Inspector Andrew Nyabicha reported the incident to the EACC (Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission) and helped in apprehending the bribe-seekers.

The individuals involved in the bribery attempt, George Guyo, Hassan Sheikh Mohamed, and Mohamed Maalim Abass, were arrested.

They were processed at the EACC Upper Eastern Regional Office in Isiolo and released on bail pending further investigation.

Mahamad, the suspect they tried to release, allegedly robbed three Ethiopian women while smuggling them into the country on February 23, 2024. He diverted from the Isiolo-Moyale highway, robbed them, and fled to Nairobi.

The victims were rescued by a passerby who alerted the police. Mahamad’s associates attempted bribery after his arrest to secure his release.

EACC praised the OCS for refusing to compromise national security for personal gain, commending his integrity.

“This is what is expected of all police officers in the country, as part of the much-needed collective effort to weed out corruption from police operations,” the commission said.
