Nag­ina ward rep in Fun­yula ac­cuses cops of col­lud­ing with hard­core crim­i­nals

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

Nang­ina ward rep­re­sen­ta­tive John Ob­wogo has ac­cused po­lice of abet­ting crime.

He said crime is on the rise be­cause of­fi­cers who have been posted at Nang­ina po­lice sta­tion for so many years are col­lud­ing with crim­i­nals.

“When­ever hard­core crim­i­nals are ar­rested and ar­raigned be­fore court, they are later set free,” Ob­wogo said.

“Some of the se­cu­rity of­fi­cers at Nang­ina po­lice sta­tion have stayed here for many years. I want to urge the county po­lice boss to move with speed and trans­fer the of­fi­cers to other sta­tions.”

He was ad­dress­ing the press at Fun­yula on Wed­nes­day. Ob­wogo said the of­fi­cers have sired il­le­git­i­mate chil­dren with lo­cal women.

“The po­lice of­fi­cers at Nang­ina po­lice sta­tion also claim they do not have fuel for their ve­hi­cles,” he said. Ob­wogo said crime has reached alarm­ing lev­els and is out of con­trol.
