Three GSU officers arrested after kidnapping a CHINESE National in Mlolongo - INTERPOL led the operation

Thursday, January 18, 2024 - Three police officers are guests of the state after they were arrested for kidnapping a Chinese national.

The three who are from the General Service Unit (GSU) were arrested in an operation led by Interpol.

The victim was waylaid on his way to work, where two cars blocked his vehicle before the suspects cuffed him and sped off towards Machakos direction.

After hours of disappearance, concerned friends reported to the police about the businessman who never arrived at his workplace as expected, where detectives forensically traced him to Mua Hills in Machakos.

Upon arrival at the Mua Hills, the mastermind called the victim's family back in China demanding an unestablished amount of ransom, which was wired to a bank account in China.

After the money was deposited, the gang's accomplices in China confirmed that the family had complied, and the victim was released.

Swinging into action, the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI) with the help of Interpol initiated a systematic probe into the abduction right from Mombasa Road, where two vehicles were picked as vehicles of interest.

The GSU officers were arrested and were on Wednesday arraigned at Mavoko Law Courts.
