The police are holding two men who had posed as DCI officers in a scheme to extort a member of parliament.
The two Personation suspects; Dennis Muturi Nyakundi & Victor Onsare were arrested on Wednesday at a Hotel in Nairobi after summoning a Member of Parliament through WhatsApp with a forged compelling Notice to present himself at DCI HQs for questioning on an undisclosed matter.
The Legislator later received a call from a private number rescheduling his appearance at DCI offices to a later date, but required that they meet at the hotel for a talk.
On being suspicious of the inconsistent events, the MP reported to DCI Parliament where a trap was set and the two suspects nabbed.
They are in custody undergoing interrogations on a suspected Extortion attempt.
Elsewhere, several fake documents have been recovered in an intelligence led operation that was conducted by a team of CRIB detectives in conjunction with DCI officers based at Isinya.
The operation also led to the arrest of Mr Christopher Mayuka; the proprietor of ChristAthi Consultancy that operates at Reli Co-op building along Uyoma street in Nairobi Central Business District.
The suspect has been arrested in connection with printing of fake Kenha documents, motor vehicle log books, KRA certificates among other government of Kenya documents.
His firm that has been operating without a valid license was found to be offering fraudulent book keeping & company registration services.
