A man claiming to be a soldier from the Kenya Defence Forces, KDF, has been arrested for non-compliance during alcoblow tests at Museum Hill roadblock in Nairobi.

According to a statement released by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), Koffi Bill Atinda also known as Don is said to have impersonated a KDF Captain and refused to roll down the windows of his car for the alcoblow test like other motorists.

“The furious suspect had instead stepped out of the car and identified himself as a KDF captain, pointing at a KDF sticker displayed on the windscreen of his black Toyota Prado TX Reg No.KDL 100G.” the statement read in part.

Don unable to convince officers of his service to the Force by failing to produce the requisite certificate of appointment sought the intervention of a serving military captain. The Captain however distanced himself from the suspect when things heated up.

A call to Department of Defense (DoD) offices confirmed that the suspect was not serving in the military, prompting his immediate arrest & arraignment at Milimani Law Courts for traffic-related offenses.

He however was released after clearing with the court for the traffic related charges but was ambushed by the anti-robbery police at Nairobi Area Traffic HQs where he had gone to collect his detained vehicle in company of his alleged driver, Kennedy Otieno Omwanda. 

The two were briefly interrogated before their case was handed over to the Director Operations, who dispatched the Operation Support Unit to dig deeper into the dealings of the duo who are also according to officers are suspected of money laundering.

“After a search in the 1st suspect’s vehicle, Omwanda was equally arrested following the recovery of 15 fake USD notes in 100 denomination, a police pocket phone, a siren fitted in the vehicle, expired Ugandan car insurance, 7 simcard holders, two stamps from different companies among others.” The statement read.

Further search in Don’s residence located along Hilltop Rd in Ngong saw the seizure of military camouflage jungle fatigues and more company documents. Several of his social media posts were also found to contain photos of him holding firearms that are yet to be recovered. 

A third suspect, Kennedy Otieno Odhiambo, was found with  three hand grenades, a Sauer P229 pistol, 12 rounds of ammunition and a firearm certificate whose authentication is underway in his possession. The third suspect alleged to have received the grenades from a Kenya Prisons officer for safe keeping.

More investigations are underway to get to the bottom of the case.
