Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission (EACC) has arrested Ibrahim Ngamau Wangari, who was posing as an EACC Investigator and extorting money from individuals purportedly to “protect them from investigations.”  

Ngamau was escorted to Integrity Centre Police Station and later to Kilimani Police Station for processing.

According to a statement on twitter, Ngamau was arrested at Quivers Lounge, Nairobi following a complaint from a businessman who was among the Millers enlisted by Government to supply subsidized maize flour before the August 9 elections.

His arrest comes in the wake of complaints that the commission continues to receive from members of the public on extortion by imposters.

“To protect the public from such fraudsters, EACC has not only issued its officers with identification documents, which can be verified on request, but also continues to warn Kenyans to be vigilant and report any suspicious persons presenting themselves as EACC investigators.” Read the statement.

The commission has advised members of the public to always insist to any person claiming to be an EACC Investigator to first identify themselves.
